As Morecambe and Wise films go as a comedy this isn’t there best but still a good film all the same, as a thriller it’s a tad lacking and I believe the comedy suffers to try and give it a thrillers edge. The acting isn’t totally up-to scratch, by all the cast, the few gags that are in it are liberally spread, and there but if you blink you will miss them. You can tell parts were dubbed, and only true Morecambe and Wise fans will appreciate this film. Seeing that I am not heavily in to thrillers and haven’t read any books of which this “send-up of some of the great thriller writers, including Edgar Wallace, Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie” is based on, so I may have missed some of the gags. Even though it’s not the best of the films they made together but worth a watch!
A good effort from Thames Television
Frankly, by the extremely humble standards of Thames TV, I don’t think this TV movie is half as bad as everyone else does – particularly Morecambe and Wise, both of whom were somehow under the impression that they were making a theatrical feature. Frankly, you might well ask that with a money-wise, save-the-lights director like Joe McGrath on board, how could you possibly imagine you were making a theatrical feature? True, by the extremely bumble standards of TV, the movie has been lavishly produced and maybe this largess contributed to Morecambe and Wise’s misunderstanding. It’s also true that the screenplay could have been a whole lot wittier and punchier, but by the exceptionally low standards of TV, it’s actually quite acceptable. And the movie does boast some stylish credit titles and some agreeable songs. And as for the script, I’m always a sucker for a Cat and the Canary spoof, and this one has some lively moments despite very obvious, hasty shooting. All told, it’s a rather good effort by the exceptionally abysmal standards of British TV.
