Could have used some of Sid James punch
29 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Richard Basehart whose strength isn't comedy is the American over across the pond giving The Extra Day a bit of box office punch. Except for Sid James this film needed all the punch it could get.

Laurence Naismith plays a film director who has just shot and wrapped his final scene of a film. But when taking the film to the editing department the can fell out of the back of the truck. Now Naismith has to shoot that last scene again and all the actors and crew have to be located and brought back to the studio on a Monday. Naismith's man Friday or Associate Producer Basehart is given the task over a weekend.

Leading lady over from France Simone Simon has romance on her mind with George Baker who not to put to fine a point on it is a stalker. With that in mind her story was a bit weird to say the least.

Leading man Dennis Lotis is a singing idol and he's also got fans and concerts and matrimony to contend with. Basehart arranges for a kidnapping for him.

Sid James who doubles as a prizefighter who's seen his best days still makes a living at it though usually with the loser's share. He's the best one in this film and Basehart resorts to some bribery in his case.

The Extra Day is a rather dated and not all that funny comedy. Maybe in the United Kingdom they might like it better.
