Doesn't It Make You Want To Spit.
9 July 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This was Askeys television catchphrase on TV in the 1950s.Maybe that's what he should have said when he read the script.If He had then just maybe he wouldn't have appeared in this pile of junk.No wonder that after this film he was absent from the screen for 11 years'It is also surprising that Val Guest and Marriott Edgar,who had been involved in the Will Hay films should have been primarily responsible.There is not one line or scene that is funny.Whoever thought that Askey and Ronnie Shiner would make a good team clearly had little idea as to how to cast a film.The musical numbers are painful to the ear.Askey can either be very funny or very unfunny.In this film he is the later.
