A Tale of Two Tassels..!

Or at least to begin with,as Striptease Artiste Barbara(Delectable Carol Hawkins)wearing the aforementioned strategically placed tassels and little else,successfully disrupts a photo-shoot of a Moscow Ballet Company,in order to facilitate the escape of her defecting Ballet star boyfriend Rudi(Amusing Lewis Fiander) to her waiting car.Unfortunately,he climbs into the boot of the wrong vehicle! This belongs to Naval Commander Rimmington(Leslie Phillips),who drives off home,and the frantic "Adventure" begins! The Film is full of Broad British humour,typical of the Seventies:Farce,Innuendo and even Slapstick:Politically Incorrect and Funny for sure. Much of the Innuendo is centred on Barbara and her obvious charms! All of the cast of British Comedy Stalwarts,several appearing in very popular t.v.Sitcoms of the time,rise appropriately to the occasion. Ian Lavender,as Civil Servant Gerry Buss(Also Boyfriend of the Commander's Daughter Nancy),has as much screen time as anyone,including pretending to be both the Commander and Rudi when called upon! Michele Dotrice(Nancy) and Carol Hawkins are fun in their respective roles,as is Roy Kinnear as the increasingly paranoic Gardener,Hoskins. Co-Director Ray Cooney is also amusing as the initially staid Mr. Laver,the MI 6 man,who' loosens up' as his drink ratio increases. Windsor Davies is the local Constable doing his best to sort out the escalating confusion,determined to get his man,even if it's the wrong one!June Whitfield and Don Estelle(Who also sings the Title song) appear later in the proceedings to add to the hilarity in important,if limiting roles. Add the two pursuing Russian KGB men into the mix also! If you enjoy this very British Entertainment of the period then this movie is for you!

Reply to: budget? what budget?

Its a shame that the previous comments seem to have focused on so much negative and missed the positive of what was always intended to be a very lighthearted comedy in the style of the Carry On films. Sets, budget and production are certainly low priority but the script is classic British humour from the 70's and to me is easily as funny as the best Carry On's .. and some parts still make me laugh out loud despite having viewed the film many times to cheer myself up on a rainy day. The best of which has to be the wonderful Ray Kinnear's encounter with the stripper/love interest in the bushes outside the house. As for the 'self referential marxist theme'comment (??!) I can only say lighten up! This is a silly piece of comedy, not a Chekov play. In a world where CGI is beginning to replace any semblance of a script, its refreshing to see something so simple and intended purely for entertainment.

A very funny film

I think its one of the most funniest films I've ever seen, makes a pleasant change to have a film with NO BAD LANGUAGE in it. Makes me laugh from start to finish,and sadly not many films do that for me these days. I would love to get a copy of it on any format I can get, preferably DVD though, but video would do. There are a lot of famous people in it which play their part perfectly, and the music is enjoyable too. I don't know why every one gives it such a bad write-up, I would sure like to see it over and over again, hence why I want a copy from somewhere. The TV stations don't even seen to want to show it, its most frustrating. Can any one help me find a copy?
