‘Stanley Moon (Dudley Moore ), longing for waitress Margaret Spencer (Eleanor Bron), is given seven wishes by George Spiggott (Peter Cook) – aja 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 Accident, The Madness of King George, The Wings of the Dove, Emma, Gosford Park, The Golden Bowl and – oh, well – The Avengers.
