Nostalgic look at 1950's
5 March 2006 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie late the other night and it tugged the nostalgia strings. Yes Anthony Newley was a joy to watch as was a very very young Ronnie Corbett. Harry Fowler (later in the Army Game on TV) had a big part. Cant help but think he looks a lot like Robbie Fowler the footballer. Is that just a coincidence? Can anyone help? And what about sad old Alfie Bass also to star in the Army Game in 1960/61. What a face. I think they did a spin off later called Bootsie and Snudge (with Ronnie Fraser also from the Army Game.) Sadly it is all going to be forgotten. Its a fine example of English comedy before the influence of Monty Python when life was still so innocent and the Goons and Around The Horne were still on the Radio and Tony Hancock was making everyone laugh. Regards, Frank.
