Three feature films from Morecambe & Wise!
Britain’s best-loved and illustrious comedy duo, Eric Morecambe & Ernie Wise, bring us copious amounts of sunshine in this collection featuring all three of their 1960s feature films.
The Intelligence Men (1965)
In this cynical parody on James Bond cliches, Eric and Ernie are caught up in a world of mystery and mayhem as they play a pair of bungling detectives attempting to protect a ballerina from Russian agents.
That Riviera Touch (1966)
A movie of mistaken identity… our comedy double act play a pair of travelling salesmen who set off for South America. The fun and games begin when Eric is mistaken for the son of the late President and is rushed off to a military headquarters. There he explains the situation and is eventually believed. However, on pain of death he is forced to pose as the President’s son. When he has to make a speech on TV, Eric’s captors get far more trouble than they bargained for.
The Magnificent Two (1967)
Our comedy duo take on the roles of a pair of traffic wardens on holiday in the South of France. They set off in a ‘vintage’ car, and are soon spotted by a gang of jewel thieves who see in Eric, Ernie and their decrepit motor car the perfect cover for smuggling stolen goods. As the two settle into their villa, a rival gang begins to stalk them. Eric and Ernie must foil all the crooks, who become most anxious when Eric wins in the casino and plans to buy a new car!
