Goofs

Although Bill Ferguson's (Richard Todd) travel agency and apartment are located in Edinburgh, Scotland, his white Jaguar XK150 carries the number plate, VUL 867, which is a central London registration. Similarly, the Rolls Royce taxi (yes, there were Rolls Royce taxis in Edinburgh in the 1950s and later) carries the number plate NDP 63, which indicates it was registered in Reading in Berkshire in the Thames Valley, in south east England.

A brave effort to enter the realms of modern comedy.
26 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Richard Todd staked a lot in making this film which was received reasonably and attempted to loose his British stiff upper lip image. The cast included a plethora of pin ups of the time and the light hearted affair was very brave for the time. It however did not propel Todd into another vein of stardom and was probably his effort to galvanise his film career.He however continued to appear in many films with his most noted part being his reprise of the glider landing at the Orne river in The Longest Day.Unfortunately times change and his character type seemed no longer to be in demand as British films fell into more obscurity at this time.The mass movement of US big budgets and generally mass appeal took their toll.
