A pre-Bond Connery plays a bit of a simpleton is this quirky British comedy. It's more a series of sketches rather than a complete film with Lynch (the main character) and Connery involved in a series of cons during WW2. They make a great double act and they're supported by some great British comedy talent. The film takes an uneasy turn to the dramatic towards the end but up till then it's an enjoyable (although slight) comedy.

Slightly disappointing war comedy given that its packed with comedy greats of that era, but its worth a look just to see a pre Bond Connery in an unfamiliar role.

Sean Connery looks very out of place as a lame sidekick to Alfred Lynch who feels more suited to British mid 20th century comedy than his Scottish screen partner. Connery was only a couple of films off being Bond and was probably filming it around the time of this release yet he feels so divorced from the film series what made him in this one.
