NOT so compelling as "Not now Darling".
on 8 February 2014
A Russian Ballet team arrive in Britain and are interviewed and filmed outside the Royal Albert Hall, London. The proceedings are deliberately interrupted by a young lady (Carol Hawkins) who proceeds to dance around topless in front of the group. This is a subterfuge to enable one of the team, a male dancer, to detach himself and make an escape or, in diplomatic terms, seek asylum. He was supposed to jump into the car boot of the topless lassie but instead secretes himself in the boot of a more capacious car owned by a Naval Commander (played by Leslie Phillips). This then leads to a number of folk making their way to the home of the naval commander where the fantasy is played out, it has to be admitted, with some tedium.
Centre stage is held in the main by the actors: Lewis Fiander, Michele Dotrice, Ray Cooney, Ian Lavender and Carol Hawkins; Philips scarcely has time in which to display his usual talents and June Whitfield only turns up towards the end.
Not in this reviewer's opinion quite so successful as the companion film "Not now Darling" Not Now, Darling  [DVD].
