Spanish Fly

The screen is awash with bounderism and caddishness when screen icons Terry-Thomas and Leslie Phillips star as rivals in this sunny, mid-'70s sex comedy set on the Mediterranean island of Minorca

Spanish Fly is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Despite the scenery and sunshine, expat Sir Percy de Courcy feels dejected. In a cunning wheeze to make some much-needed money, he's bought 100,000 gallons of local wine, hoping to sell it at a vast profit. Unfortunately, even Sir Percy has to admit the wine tastes foul, and when he asks his chauffeur to 'improve' the taste, a certain local ingredient finds its way into the bottles, turning it into a potent aphrodisiac! Add Sir Percy's old school-friend Mike - arriving on the island to supervise a series of glamorous lingerie photo-shoots- and it seems Sir Percy is about to experience a sudden reversal of fortunes!

First released: Monday 22nd April 2013
