Quotes

Servant Girl: Oooh, Squire Western, you dirty old devil, Sir. And I thought you was asleep.
Squire Western: Did you now? Hey, don't struggle so, you know I've got a bad heart. And when I go, I want to die in bed.
Servant Girl: Not with me, you ain't!
Squire Western: Hmm, you're plump as a Christmas goose. And that's without the stuffing.
Servant Girl: Many a true word spoken in jest, Sir.
Squire Western: What do mean, girl?
Servant Girl: I hardly know how to say it, Sir. As you know, I'm a single girl, God-fearing and blameless.
Squire Western: Yes, yes, yes, go on.
Servant Girl: I'm with child!
Squire Western: What? Tell me who's pupped you...

Not good a good film.
28 May 2004 | by RacerX-23See all my reviews

This is not a good film to see after several hits of red bud. It will haunt you for years, and not in a good way. In many ways, it is similar to the Star Wars Christmas Special, but not really. Bea Arthur isn't in it, and maybe she should have been. Terry Thomas is a good actor, but doesn't the gap between his front teeth bother you? I know it bothers me.

There are probably better mid-70s, English t&a films to watch, but I wouldn't know of any off hand. I saw this about fifteen years ago on cable, after having come home from a night of heavy clubbing. I should have gone to bed, but no... I just couldn't look away once the thing started... all those braincells, wasted...
