This is a film of two half's really, the first half is like most of the other Norman Wisdom films, very slap stick comedy, and not that intelligent. I do like the slap stick stuff, and Norman is one of the best at it, I love the scene where he is hiding in the hole shouting out orders as the military are trying to do their marching. The second half of the film is quite serious, Norman ends up in France and gets captured, he looks identical to the German in charge, played by Norman of course. But having two different characters in the film makes the story very interesting, and more of a drama than a comedy. It also shows that although Norman is extremely good at comic roles, his also a brilliant straight actor too, later in life in television work he would prove how great a straight actor he is. This is one of the best early Wisdom films, and everything seems to gel well here, this is must see film, and worth taking seriously.
