| Delightful blend of humor and mystery-solving.
I have little to add to the other reviews that have pointed out the lamentable fact of this film's undeserved obscurity. It's a bit hard to describe or categorize because it is such a relaxed combination of light to oddball comedy plus a first rate mystery being pursued by an uncommon sleuth (Terry-Thomas in top form) and his American "sidekick" (Alex Nicol doing a competent job with an unconventional assignment as an actor).

It is common to say that they don't make 'em like this any more. In this film's case it's also true that they never made so very many like this at all. I won't pretend that it's brilliant, though Terry-Thomas's performance probably qualifies, but it is the obvious product of a clear vision, a strong hand at the helm, and a very able crew. Once it started it kept me amused and engaged constantly.

What fun! If you have any affection for British comedy or light mystery, do not miss it
