This farfetched British political comedy is set in colonial South Africa. Anticipating the plotline of 1988's Moon Over Parador, loveable lummox Hugh E. Wright is dragooned into posing as the deposed president of a banana republic. Since the president has been targeted for death, poor old Hugh E. must duck, dodge and hide throughout the film's 69 minutes. The film is based on Cyril Campion's play Trust Berkeley, with several wheezy-but-funny music hall interpolations. Adventure Limited was released in the US by Paramount.
