Woeful
19 July 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Ronnie Shiner was a big star in the 1950s particularly for ABPC>Anyone watching this film must wonder why.Every line is shouted out with lots of mugging as if he is trying to reach the people sitting at the rear of a theatre.Mind you everyone else is at it so maybe the director is to blame.The cast is actually quite decent including a very young Joan Simms pre Carry On.However even they cannot save this witless farce from inducing terminal boredom in the viewer..I defy anyone watching this film to last more than 30 minutes without loosing interest.Difficult for me to believe that i was a great fan of his and always used to go and see his films in the fifties and sixties.Thankfully i did not waste my 4/- when this load of rubbish was shown in the cinema and you should not waste your time now.
