Nicholas Frankau in Allo 'Allo!

Allo 'Allo!

1984 NR

A parody of the BBC wartime drama "Secret Army," this WWII-set BBC sitcom centers on René Artois (Gordon Kaye), a French café owner in occupied Nouvion, France, who always manages to get himself into major hot water with the authorities. What provides many of the laughs are the Resistance's ever-failing, half-baked plans to get their airmen back to England. Carmen Silvera plays Edith, René's out-of-tune, cabaret-performing wife.
