An early film outing for Peter Sellers doing what he did best
19 June 2016 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is an oddity - review and variety performers of variable quality interspersed with short sketches with Sellers playing various curious characters. Here he certainly shows potential and the relative restraint and lack of goony-ness allows him to demonstrate abilities which really reached their pinnacle in Dr Strangelove. Overall along with the better of the acts, quite entertaining.

One uncredited cast member (Mr Jollibottom)has a voice instantly recognisable to older British viewers. Wallace Eaton was the dismal barman in the long running radio comedy "Take it from Here", whose weekly role it was to serve a dismal pint of Mild and Bitter, and to listen, to the show's main star relate the goings on in the dreadful "Glum" household. Eaton was allowed dismal catch-phrases in the show such as "get yerself a trade". He had more of a career in the theatre than in film, appearing in "Fings ain't wot they used t'be"
