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 Robert Altman's Gosford Park, Joseph Losey's Accident, The Madness of King George, the 1969 musical version of Goodbye Mr Chips with Peter O'Toole, The Wings Of The Dove, Emma,The Golden Bowl and – oh, well –The Avengers.
