NEW FILM ONLINE: "Don't Just Lie There, Say Something!"

Year: 1973

Stars: Brian Rix, Leslie Phillips, Joan Sims, Joanna Lumley

Director: Bob Kellett

Locations: London

Plot: Any film that has a title that is more than two words, give or take a definite, or even indefinite article should be viewed with suspicion. This film is no exception. Brian Rix participates, and, as with all his other Whithall farces, this one concerns mistaken identity, people losing their trousers and other items of hysterically funny British humour that kept the audiences rolling in the isles. If only the whole cast had been shipped out to one of the outer Isles of the Hebrides we'd have all been spared.
However, we are not here to view the artistic merits, or otherwise, of the films that we add to the site but to investigate and identify the locations used, and here we have a considerable number diligently sleuthed by Adrian Grepnold and Simon James, two of our consistent and stalwart research assistant.

Number of Stills: 14
Number of 'Now' Shots: 9
