A delightful Boulting Brothers comedy about a mild, innocent undergraduate (Carmichael) drafted into the army, falling in with a bunch of spivs, and being sent to Germany disguised as a Nazi to steal art treasures. The absurdly irreverent attitude towards everything - army routines, class snobbery, official protocol, and corruption - is the stuff of amiable, nostalgic farce rather than biting satire, but it's beautifully performed by a host of character actors and often very funny.
