The Intelligence Men
The Intelligence Men was Eric and Ern’s first foray into the film format. DVD review.
That Riviera Touch
The second feature film gave Eric and Ern more freedom as well as letting them film in the South of France surrounded by women in bikinis!
The Magnificent Two
This was the last of the Rank films promised to Eric & Ern, and was probably the worst of the bunch.
We Interview Suzanne Lloyd
Suzanne Lloyd starred in Morecambe and Wise’s 1966 film, That Riviera Touch.
Morecambe and Wise Press Packs
Feature from 2008
As feature films are released, the press are given packs that introduce them to the film, story and characters to facilitate reviews and promotion. In this series of features we reveal some of the weird things you can find in these packs.
The Intelligence Men (aka Spylarks)
1965 saw the release of the first Morecambe & Wise movie that was part of a three film deal with Rank. Eric and Ern had always wanted to do movies and follow their heroes Laurel and Hardy onto the big screen. When Rank made them the offer of three films in three years, they snapped it up.
That Riviera Touch
With their second film, Eric and Ern were given a bit more room but still felt restricted in this medium. Of the three films this is probably the best. Read more about the making of the film in our interview with Suzanne Lloyd.
Magnificent Two (aka What Happened At Campo Grande)
Eric and Ern's third and final film for Rank. The boys play toy salesmen caught up in a revolution. It is interesting to read some of the material in this one, especially when Eric and Ern are being hyped up as having two previous 'smash hit' films.
