I wonder if the director of this film went to see a stage performance of this film and decided to keep all the stage directions and mannerisms in the film.It seems that every line is shouted and the actors indulge in the most cringe worthy mugging.perhaps the only actor exempt from this criticism is George Cole.Incidentally the poor put upon member of the audience in the music hall sitting next to George Cole is none other than Richard Massingham who made public information shorts.There is a good cast including John Pertwee,James Hayter,Sid James,Diana decker but they are all wasted.It is woefully unfunny,although the technicolour photography gives a certain freshness to the picture.
