I Only Arsked! was adapted by Jack Davies from his popular, long-running BBC TV series The Army Game. Cpl. Springer (Michael Medwin), Popeye Poppiewell (Bernard Bresslaw) and Excused Boots Bisley (Alfie Bass) are but three of the habitual foul-ups assigned to the command of Major Upshot Bagley (Geoffrey Sumner). On duty in the Middle East, this awkward squad is assigned to quell a revolution. Despite several monumental blunders, the squad manages to complete their task successfully, and even find time to dally with a few nubile harem girls. The level of humor in I Only Arsked! will perhaps best be appreciated by fans of the original series.
