A fantastic cast star in this World War 11 comedy farce, featuring the antics of an eclectic mix of entertainers of an organisation that called itself Entertainment National Service Association. Known as ENSA for short, or, rather cruelly, Every Night Something Awful! Fresh from the music halls, they certainly give the camp the run around in more ways than one, and bumble their way to triumph!

With Miss Patch (Irene Handl) playing a most sorrowful tune in a brothel (something that is actually extremely clever), which has everyone in tears; Sid and Dora singing cockney songs - badly - and the other entertainers with a variety of different "acts", they manage to entertain the troops. In the midst of this, Bert discovers the troops enjoy singing "Lilli Marlene" and he endeavours to find the composer. However, in the meantime, his own attempts at writing the lyrics are hardly to be called successful, but they are a witty addition to the story.
On their travels, they somehow (more through luck than anything elese) manage to find and thwart a Nazi team masquerading as British soldiers.
Completely farcical, highly entertaining and fun. It certainly isn't a "classic", but just for sheer entertainment, it is certainly worth a watch.
Michael Relph’s film (with its title clearly a play on that of the 1953 Richard Burton war movie The Desert Rats) is a mixture of the good and the bad. For every bit of hilarious genius like Handl reducing a brothel full of sailors to tears with her homely piano playing, we have to put up with a scene of workshy windbag Major Alfred Marks giving Fortescue another dressing down at the top of his voice, which becomes very tiresome after the seventh or eighth time. TV comedian and occasional film actor Marks actually gets top billing, and he isn’t terrible, it is just that his character is far too one-note and unsympathetic for a nominal protagonist (incidentally a criticism that can also be levelled at his playing in the only other movie in which I’ve seen him, the gory 1970 horror flick Scream and Scream Again).Read more ›
