If you like Terry-Thomas you will love this movie. For my money it is one of the great forgotten classic British comedies of that era. It was later re-made in the 1980's, in the USA, under the title of "Ruthless People" with Bette Midler and Danny De Vito. They shouldn't have bothered - it was not a patch on this brilliant original. The storyline is classic farce: a gang of crooks kidnap the wife of a wealthy arms dealer and attempt to ransom her back to him. Unfortunately, the arms dealer (Terry-Thomas) is not playing ball and has no intention of paying. The result is that the kidnapped wife joins with the gang to take Terry for every penny he's got. It sounds corny, but, trust me, it is very, very funny. So, go on, what are you waiting for? Buy it now!
