(Dick Clement, 1969) Release date: 26 June 2023 Standard Edition Blu-ray
Gerry Otley (Tom Courtenay – The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, Billy Liar, 45 Years) is a charming scrounger who stumbles unwittingly into espionage, murder and double crossing as he is mistaken for a spy, kidnapped, and then becomes romantically embroiled with a sexy foreign agent, played by Romy Schneider (Purple Noon, Ludwig, Death Watch).
Adeptly balancing thrills and laughs, this sixties comic spy thriller from writer-director Dick Clement (TV’s The Likely Lads; Porridge; Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) is a stellar addition to the British canon of post-Bond spy flicks.
