As previously reported, Cliff Twemlow's autobiography 'Tuxedo Warrior' was made into a film in 1982. Bizarrely, the film makers turned the Mancunian bouncer protagonist into a bar owner in South Africa, then embroiled him in a love triangle and a diamond smuggling operation. Always game, Twemlow appeared in a supporting role but must have made a mental note to be the star of his own show in future (he's in the trailer, by the way, the big blond bloke kicking the star in the head at the start who then loses his shirt).
The trailer is in Spanish (I think, it's not one of my languages, i.e. English) which is amusing in itself, but the moment when the announcer breathlessly says 'lo exotico...co lo erotico' is when I usually start giggling.
