This was Bob Monkhouse’s only film for Hammer. He bacame a household name as host of London Weekend TV’s “Golden Shot” in 1967, followed by shows such as “Celebrity Squares” & “Family Fortunes” Leslie Phillips,  a much-loved comic actor who has specialized in playing plummy, quintessentially English stereotypes. A star of many films, he also provided the voice for The Sorting Hat in the “Harry Potter” films. Shirley Eaton famously played the girl painted gold in the James Bond film “Goldfinger” (1964). This was Sid James’ last film for Hammer, he starred in “Quatermass 2” (1957), “The Glass Cage” (1955), “The House Across the Lake” (1954), “The Flanagan Boy” (1953) and “The Lady Craved Excitement” (1950)
