Said friend, Ralph Hargrove (Guy Doleman), is a surly, despondent beekeeper. This cheerful old guy is married to a surly, despondent old woman that smokes and only pets their dog. Vicki's vacation really kicks into high gear once she meets the rival beekeeper in town, one Mr. Manfred (Frank Finlay). [[note]]Incidentally, Finlay played Iago to LaurenceOlivier's ''Theatre/{{Othello}}'' only two years before this movie's release. Unbelievable as it seems while watching ''The Deadly Bees'', Finlay also portrayed Porthos in Richard Lester's ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers1973''.[[/note]]

** Of course, the intended target of most of the attacks was Hargrove. Manfed is just an incompetent nitwit.

** Mrs. Hargrove is (at most) ten feet from her open door when she's attacked by killer bees, but just stands there, apparently never considering just ''running inside.''

* CarChase: Late in the film, Vicki tries to drive off with Hargrove's jeep in a panicked escape attempt. As this was also the late 60s, she does this wearing only a coat and underwear.

'''''The Deadly Bees''''' is a 1967 British film produced by Creator/AmicusProductions and adapted from the novel ''A Taste For Honey''. The depressing story begins with overworked pop star Vicki Robbins (Suzanna Leigh) collapsing whilst lip-synching a "live" TV performance. Her doctor prescribes some immediate R&R for her, and packs her off to an old friend of his who has a farm on Seagull Island, isolated from the pressures of the outside world.
