What on earth is this man talking about? It's like Escape to Victory for forgers - only it's intentionally funny!
The late Michael Elphick puts in a suitably sheepish role as the luckless Schultz, while Peter Richardson comes out as the real star - most of the time a ruthless, goose-stepping, selfish b*stard! Just when you think everything is going right for Schultz, the Nazis turn up, he gets bonked on the head, nearly drowned in a fjord or blown to smithereens! Classic!
Great watching, and I hope it comes out on DVD! My VHS recording is starting to look a bit tatty!
