ORDERS ARE ORDERS
A review by THE MOTION PICTURE GUIDE ANNUAL





(out of 5)



Edward Lexy and Pleasence
A Hollywood film unit invades two British army barracks when the commanding officer is away. The officer suddenly turns up, putting a slight delay in the filming until the makers are able to charm him, using a pretty starlet, voluptuous blonde Grahame, into allowing them to continue. However, when an army big shot decides to make a snap inspection, the film unit is unable to explain its reasons for being in the camp. Except for a couple of decent comic performances, the good cast, including both Peter Sellers and Donald Pleasence in early roles, are wasted by the film's haphazard construction.
