Film / One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing
A 1975 Disney
film set in London in the 1920s. Lord Southmere steals the "Lotus X" formula from China on microfilm, then hides it in a dinosaur skeleton in the Natural History Museum. He then loses his memory, and can't remember exactly where he hid it, so a group of nannies try to find it before the Chinese can reclaim it.
This film contains examples of:
- Easy Amnesia: Lord Southmere keeps getting clonked on the head by bricks, causing him to lose/regain his memory.
- Mistaken for Spies: Lord Southmere keeps insisting that he's not a spy, just an ordinary businessman. However, nobody else believes him; as his (former) nanny points out, he would say that if he was a spy.
- My Kung-Fu Is Stronger Than Yours: The Chinese guards are tricked into breaking the dungeon walls to show who is the strongest in order for the nannies to escape.
- Not My Driver: Lord Southmere is kidnapped by the Chinese.
- Parasol of Pain: Lord Southmere's umbrella is apparently a gun in disguise, although we only see him threaten someone, and not actually fire it.
- Also, normal umbrellas and handbags are the general weapons of choice for the nannies.
- Photo Doodle Recognition: The Chinese soldiers trying to catch Lord Southmere before he leaves China spot him through his disguise by scribbling a Fu Manchu moustache and a coolie hat onto his photo.
- Stiff Upper Lip: Lord Southmere remains calm and polite throughout the movie, despite being knocked out and locked in a dungeon.
