Intelligence Men, The

Eric and Ernie’s (here as “Ernie Sage”, ho-ho) first cinematic venture, made before they sealed their legend status at the Beeb, has a few good bits (the corpse mess-up, Swan Lake, the judo) but, as usual, too much stilted explanatory dialogue. The cast list’s a good’un, tho’ – William ‘Schhh’ Franklyn, Richard ‘Slarti’ Vernon, Terence ‘Bergerac’ Alexander, Johnny ‘Mike Baldwin and Me’ Briggs, Peter “a dooooooooooooomesday shrooooooooooooooud” Bull, Warren Mitchell and, in the lift, Marianne Stone.
