Speaking on BBC Radio 4's "Loose Ends" in September 2016, 'Petula Clark' (Lee Nicholls) recalled this as a "dreadful film", noting that the noxious artificial fog used in studio - to disguise the conspicuous lack of background scenery - made the cast fall ill. See more »

Pretty dire but just about watchable. A rather strange film too. I kept getting the feeling that I was watching two films at the same time: one a rather dull and silly crime thriller, and the other a Carry On film that Fankie Howerd seemed to think he was in. Just watch the movie and them imagine it without Frankie Howerd. See what I mean. He does not contribute anything to the story. He does his routine and the cast just stare at him bewildered. He then shuts up and the cast pick up where they left off and get on with it. It's almost like they started making the film as a regular crime thriller but then had second thoughts, so brought Frankie Howerd in to liven things up, and quickly wrote a few gags and lines for him.
