Did You Know?


Soon after filming was completed, Fiona Lewis (who was then getting quite large supporting roles in British films) gave an interview to a newspaper in which she said that the filming had been a nightmare, and describing Director Jerry Lewis as the biggest egomaniac she had ever met. Interestingly, when this movie opened in Britain, several months after its American opening, Ms. Lewis was nowhere to be seen in it. See more »


There are multiple discrepancies between the exterior shots of the Plaid Cat pub and the interior scenes, including the shootout. From the inside, a brick wall can be seen outside some of the pub's windows, but there were no brick-walled buildings shown in the establishing exterior shots. Outside another window, a city skyline is visible, but the pub is supposed to be in the countryside and the establishing shot showed only one other house and trees in the vicinity. Finally, when Charlie and Chris exit the pub, as seen from the inside, there is a brick wall outside the entrance door even though the establishing exterior shot showed only a small yard with a walkway leading all the way to the door.

One More Time Wasn't Needed
26 September 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

One More Time (1970)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Charles Salt (Sammy Davis, Jr.) and Christopher Pepper (Peter Lawford) are once again on the run after being connected to a murder of the rich Lord Syndey Pepper (Lawford).

ONE MORE TIME really shouldn't have been made and I'm really not sure why it was. This here is a sequel to SALT AND PEPPER, which apparently made enough money at the box office where the producers thought a sequel would be a good idea. For some reason, Jerry Lewis was brought on to direct the picture. I viewed this shortly after the legendary comedian passed away. Days after I went through countless talk show appearances and various interviews and yet I never heard him talk about this film.

With all of that said, I wasn't a fan of the original picture and this one here was pretty much more of the same as we get Davis and Lawford running around, trying to be funny but being letdown by a pretty bland screenplay. There's just nothing fresh or original here and both stars just appear to be going by the numbers. What's even stranger is that Lewis stayed behind the camera yet he has Davis doing this strange scenes that just don't work. Davis is pretty much asked to act like Lewis but it's not funny and it's more awkward than anything else.

The film has some fairly poor pacing and there simply weren't enough laughs here to make the film worth sitting through. If you enjoyed the first film then perhaps you'll enjoy this one a tad bit more than I did. The highlight is without question a cameo by a couple British stars.
