Stanley Moon (Dudley Moore), longing for waitress Margaret Spencer (Eleanor Bron), is given seven wishes by George Spiggott (Peter Cook) – aka The Devil – in this hit and miss but inventive Faustian satire.
The burger bar in which Margaret works was, conveniently enough, on the High Street of Borehamwood in Hertfordshire – alongside the famous film studio.
‘Heaven’ finally turns out to be the Great Conservatory at Syon Park, Brentford (tube: Gunnersbury).
The house at Syon Park has been seen in many films, including Accident, The Madness of King George, The Wings Of The Dove, Emma, Gosford Park, The Golden Bowl and – oh, well –The Avengers.
