Sub Ealing comedy
3 October 2005 | by (Casa Nostra) – See all my reviews

This is a traditional British comedy starring comic actors of the period.

It has the feeling of an Ealing comedy due to the fact that it is about the struggle between the " little man " and the government.

Reg Dixon stars as Reg Bates, a chemist who runs a shop in a small village. He also makes his own pills and potions.

One such pill is an anti smoking pill that stops people from wanting a fag.

However, when production starts on a grand scale the tobacco companies and the government set out to stop him. Of course , after many comic moments the little man triumphs.

This is a smart little comedy made more enjoyable by the likable Reg Dixon as the little man. Good for a few chuckles on a wet afternoon in January!
