The film is set during WW2 and the scenes with the Black truck,German truck and Mercedes are supposed to be in occupied France.

Sandie wrote RIP Norman Wisdom who died today.

There is a supposedly true story about the EU's instant translation facilities for delegates at the Brussels parliamentary sessions. Several years ago, a tense debate on European dairy policy was underway with big problems described in northern France, and the French minister wanted these to be resolved locally by "la sagesse des Normandes" - this was translated as "the problem will be solved by Norman wisdom". Everyone else wondered why the Brits started laughing hysterically.

The Norman Wisdom-movies, I have seen, had always the same plot. A little honest man fights against someone bigger and/or some injustice. At last he holds a big, engaged and evocative oration and then it was the Happy End.

Probably this was the reason, why Norman Wisdom-movies were only shown in the DDR-television.

Norman Wisdom was hugely popular in Albania too, and his films were the only western films shown there during the communist era. It's even said that Enver Hoxha was a fan.
