In this movie, Patty Terwilliger Smith (Dame Maggie Smith) takes Willard C. Gnatpole (Bob Newhart) shopping, where she is seen trying on clothes and buying an outfit for twenty pounds sterling at the Apple Boutique on Baker Street, London, a boutique owned and operated by The Beatles. The boutique, which was the first venture of their Apple Corps Ltd. company, and featured a large psychedelic mural on the external wall, was only operated for several months in 1968 before being closed down, and the contents given away to the public for free. This movie provides one of the few rare filmed glimpses of the boutique's interior. See more »

I first saw this film about 11 years ago when my former college Accounting professor recommended it to me. I was amazed that a movie from 1968 could so coherently and hilariously portray computer crime. Maggie Smith is delightful and Ustinov plays the "retro hacker" perfectly. "O Nolo Mio"!!!!!
