LESLIE PHILLIPS AND TERRY-THOMAS STAR IN SEX COMEDY SPANISH FLY (15)
Part of "The British Film" Collection
For the first time since its cinema release, SPANISH FLY (15) will be available to own on DVD from 22 April, RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network Distributing. The vintage sex comedy has been remastered from original materials with this version including its as-exhibited cinema aspect ratio. Directed by Bob Kellett ( Are You Being Served? ), SPANISH FLY stars Terry-Thomas as Sir Percy de Courcy ( The Persuaders ) and Leslie Phillips as Mike Scott ( Chancer ) who play rivals in this fruity comedy caper set on the Mediterranean island of Minorca in the mid-1970s.
Despite the scenery and sunshine, expat Sir Percy de Courcy feels dejected. In a cunning wheeze to make some much needed money he buys 100,000 gallons of local wine, hoping to sell it at vast profit. Unfortunately even Sir Percy has to admit the wine tastes foul, and when he asks his chauffeur to ‘improve’ the take, a certain local ingredient finds its way into the bottles, turning it into a potent aphrodisiac.
Add to the mix Sir Percy’s old school friend Mike – arriving on the island to supervise a series of glamorous lingerie photoshoots – and it seems Sir Percy is about to experience a sudden reversal of fortunes!
