Ladies Man (1962)

Lemmy Caution is on vacation in Europe.The superstar detective is mobbed everywhere he goes and he can't seem to get anything (drinking) done. Despite his best efforts to relax, Caution finds himself stumbling in and out of trouble.

Good if disposable film plays as a nice send up of the dangers of fame and a send up of the great detective genre.

Jokier than is probably healthy this is an amusing distraction and nothing more thanks to too much of a knowing attitude.

Worth a look if you want to see something completely non-taxing.

I should point out that much of the cast is also in Your Turn Darling, making a back to back viewing seem as though its one interconnected movie. (I'll be reviewing that film tomorrow)
