Sat down with an NCOT on Sunday and by chance flicked onto this Michael Bentine vehicle from 1966, being shown on UK Gold. I was pleasantly suprised, more by the fantastic London street scenes, complete with small boys and the like looking on in the background of many scenes, the filmmakers having not bothered to shoo them off. It's got Harry Corbett, Terry-Thomas, Cribbins, Diana Dors - in fact the only person that doesn't show up is probably Milligan. Proto-hippie dolly birds, lads in brown makeup pretending to be an Indian beat combo ('The Sikh-ers'), it had the lot.
