What a Whopper!

Adam Faith searches for the Loch Ness monster (and, yes, sings the eponymous theme song) in the sort of fantasy comedy only a collaboration between Jeremy ‘Are You Being’ Lloyd and Terry ‘Genesis of the’ Nation could produce, with one of those Cream cast lists to die for – Sid James as a landlord, Charles Hawtrey as a Bohemian artist, Spike Milligan as a fisherman, Terry Scott and Gordon Rollings as coppers, Clive Dunn, Lance Percival, Wilfrid Brambell, Molly Weir, Fyffe “I’m standing here with this huge fish” Robertson and, in a slightly early seasonal appearance, Freddie ‘Dinner for One’ Frinton acting pissed.

    If Sid James put on an American accent for those roles where he played an American (e.g. Carry On Cowboy), why didn’t he put on a Scottish accent to play The Scots landlord in What a Whopper? It might have made his performance even funnier.
