Is that the one where Mr Milligan plays a straight role?Suspect - British B movie of little significance other than the production of another film had finished 3 weeks early and a wager was made that they could throw together a film in that time.
They managed it in 17 days, and Spike Milligan featured in a character role of Janitor at a secret research establishment. At one point a statue was unveiled with RN buglers, and Spike has medals up. It's b&w, but there were 2 stars, defence medal?, and victory medal ?.
No listing of Spike's decorations, but Africa & Italian stars would be right. Don't think I've ever seen a pic of him medalled up.
Not hamming it up, but still commented on by his boss as an odd chap. I forgot to mention he had trouble with the monkey, in fact he was locked up by him. Strictly speaking, the monkey was a chimpanzee.Is that the one where Mr Milligan plays a straight role?
Watched it on the strength of that. You're right.... even the 'eerie' music and slomo action bits like OWWS. Good film though. Solid performance from Ragnar. Thumbd up.
Just to thank you for this recommendation. I watched it last night after my son told me I would like it, although I didn't expect to. I was wrong, it's an excellent movie.I might view this when its available on the net, definately not PC. Apparently the Hitler type chap is his imaginary friend
The camo pattern for the sojers was designed especially for the film apparently, just in case any spotters want to try and find out what they used.According to that script, in 2027 the British Army wears US-style "Fritz" helmets.
And blocky digital-like camo kit.
