Comedy legend Benny Hill (The Italian Job) stars as Hugo Dill, an inept ice rink attendant, amateur detective and extremely clumsy master of disguise. When Hugo stumbles into an international espionage plot, he’s thrown into a crazy case of mistaken identity, murderous spies, a bumbling romance with a beautiful strongwoman (Belinda Lee, It Happened in ’43) and a top-secret machine that can control the world’s weather. David Kossoff (The Mouse That Roared) co-stars in this Ealing Studios slapstick hit directed by the great Basil Dearden (Dead of Night, The Mind Benders) and written by T.E.B. Clarke (The Lavender Hill Mob).
