Typical of Richard Lester films circa 1975. I swear, he copied at least part of the soundtrack from H.E.L.P.! Malcolm McDowell was perfectly cast as Harry Flashman, although it is rumored that John Cleese was also considered. Fun cameo by a very young Bo Hoskins, and seriously good acting by Oliver Reed as Otto von Bismark. Britt Eckland is always fun to watch, too. Methinks the silliness dragged on a little too long (102 minutes), but it is certainly worth watching as a cult movie.
