Details

Gerry Otley (Tom Courtenay The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, Billy Liar, 45 Years) is a charming scrounger who stumbles unwittingly into espionage, murder and double crossing as he is mistaken for a spy, kidnapped, and becomes romantically embroiled with an alluring foreign agent, played by Romy Schneider (Purple Noon, Ludwig, Death Watch).

Adeptly balancing thrills and laughs, this Sixties comic spy thriller from writer-director Dick Clement (TV's The Likely Lads, Porridge, Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) is a stellar addition to the British canon of post-Bond spy flicks.
