Then Churchill Said To Me

Then Churchill Said To Me

A Second World War romp, set in the British government's secret underground HQ in London in 1941.

Frankie Howerd is cast as a dithering underling, Private Potts, a general dogsbody who seemed to be a direct descendant of the factotums he had played in Up Pompeii! and Whoops Baghdad and feature films Up The Chastity Belt and Up The Front.

To make matters slightly different this time, the skiving and cowardly Potts happens to be the spitting image of Fearless Freddy Hollocks, a respected general with a will of iron, and he plays both roles.

First released: Monday 17th July 2006
