A detective gets involved with a wealthy socialite who can't seem to stop hiccupping.
This early outing by director Ralph Thomas is a madcap romantic comedy about a socialite with hiccups, featuring a number of surreal vignettes and cameo appearances. One of the final films produced by Gainsborough Pictures.
It's Susan's birthday and her two guardians Ernest Bennett (Mervyn Johns) and Major Basil Beagle (Peter Haddon), and two nephews Spencer Stone and Humphrey Beagle, take her for an evening out in London when she is struck down by recurring hiccups. Her guardians consult Dr. Jekyll (Wilfrid Hyde-White), who diagnoses that a severe fright may cure Susan of her affliction, and so Mr Bennett arranges a night in a haunted house possessed by the spirits of Charles II and Cromwell.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
