    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Though the "Mervyn Cruddy, Spy Catcher" sketch was clearly labeled as such during the opening sequence, A&E's DVD set refers to the sketch as "Spy Games."

    • QUOTES (2)

      • W.C. Fields (Benny): [introducing himself] Ivor Littlejohn, ma'am.
        Mae West (Cheryl Gilham): Well, we all have our problems.

      • Skipper (Henry McGee): [describing a pair of spies] They're two of the world's top agents. But unfortunately, they work for the other side.
        Mervyn Cruddy (Benny): What, the BBC?

    • NOTES (4)

      • Thames repeated this episode on August 16, 1974.

      • Look closely during the "Lulubelle" section of the "Film Time" sketch for a "Wanted: Dirty Dave" poster hanging on a wall. This was a prop left over from "The Deputy" sketch of Show 17.

      • This show was taped on December 21, 1973.

      • Lesley Goldie and David Hamilton make their final series appearances in this episode. Also, with this edition producer/director John Robins bows out after helming 14 out of the first 20 Thames shows. He will be involved with one more Hill project, the Euston Films-EMI film compilation The Best of Benny Hill, which will mark the end of his working association with Mr. Hill.
