Delderfield's story of a couple of lovable service dodgers who become accidental heroes. On the Fiddle is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Tricked into joining the RAF by a wily judge, wide boy Horace Pope sets his sights on the main chance, teams with slow-witted, good-hearted gypsy Pedlar Pascoe, and works up a lucrative racket in conning both his colleagues and the RAF. By means of various devious schemes Pope and Pascoe manage to avoid the front lines until they are sent to France - where they find themselves making unexpected and uncomfortably close contact with the enemy...

Cyril Frankel directs this 1960s comedy starring Sean Connery in one of his final pre-Bond roles. It is World War II and layabout Cockney Horace Pope (Alfred Lynch) finds himself forced to enlist in the war effort after one of his schemes backfires. In the RAF he strikes up a friendship with Pedlar Pascoe (Connery) and the pair hatch a cunning plan to avoid being sent to the frontlines. How will they react when the peril of war finally catches up with them?
