Film version of the popular TV series set in 1940 sees the Walmington-on-Sea contingent, led by Arthur Lowe’s Captain Mainwaring, (‘I must ask you to keep your hands off my privates’) bumbling through a series of funny adventures while trying to keep the Hun at bay. The climax occurs when the gang captures three German aviators who have parachuted into Britain. All the TV favourites appear and are as irresistible as ever.
