What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Coming after Operation Bullshine and My Wife's Family, What A Whopper is a comedy from former documentarist Gilbert Gunn. Adam Faith stars in this tale about a struggling writer who fakes photographs of the Loch Ness monster and then heads for the Highlands to convince the locals so that they'll back his book. Just about every comedy stalwart you can think of crops up in support, from Carry On regulars Sid James and Charles Hawtrey to TV favourites Wilfrid Brambell and Terry Scott. Even Spike Milligan has a cameo as a tramp...
