Performers, Cast and Crew:
The hit British comedy returns in all its bawdy glory with this complete collection of episodes from the second season. Rene (Gorden Kaye) is constantly beleaguered by problems, most of them stemming from his overbearing wife. A botched attempt at getting rid of her by faking his own death leads his troublesome spouse to take over the reigns of Rene's cafe, which he leaves to her in his will. Returning as his identical twin brother, he has to renege on his agreement to marry his shapely waitress's Yvette (Vicki Michelle) and Maria (Francesca Gonshaw), and attempt to win back the heart of his former wife in order to regain control of his cafe! Meanwhile, the Second World War rages on around Rene and the cast of oddballs, but this seems to be the least of their problems in this riotously funny show.
Description by Warner Home Video:
Rene is having a difficult war. He is not frightened by the Gestapo; he is not frightened by the Germans; he is not even frightened by the French Resistance. But his wife Edith scares the living daylights out of him! And now that he has been shot dead and is posing as his own twin brother, it appears he may have to woo her all over again and even remarry her in order to gain back his cafe, which he left to her in his will. But he has also promised to marry Yvette and Maria, his two sexy waitresses. Throw in three garlic sausages, one of which contains "The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies," one of which contains a forgery and the third of which is an actual sausage, and you have a very difficult war indeed!
