A British comedy wherein the performers triumph over the thin material. Carmichael is the white sheep of a family of thieves. He finds it almost impossible to think larcenously until he comes upon a suitcase filled with banknotes. The money turns out to be counterfeit, and Carmichael must

now get rid of the bogus bills. Belinda Lee plays Carmichael's girl friend and is the weakest link in the acting. Helpmann, as a clergyman/crook is okay but should stick to roles as a dancer (THE RED SHOES, TALES OF HOFFMAN). Jill Ireland, a few years before she left husband David McCallum ("The

Man from UNCLE") for Charles Buchinski (Charles Bronson), is cute, and Leslie Phillips, who went on to a distinguished career as a CARRY ON person, as well as a West End stage star, impresses as the receptionist. It's a bit like BREWSTER'S MILLIONS except the money is phony.
