Sandy romp is a bit of a mirage
on 13 February 2013
This could have been much better I feel. It has all the elements and some good comedy actors, but seems to have been built around Phil Silvers, who is basically playing a Foreign Legion version of Bilko. although it has plenty of Carry-on regulars, Sid James and Kenneth Conner are sadly absent. The film tends to slow down a lot at intervals and apart from a very sexy dance by Anita Harris, the women are under used and the wonderful Joan Simms almost left out. Still a joy, but smiles more than laughs.
