Doesn't It Want To Make You Spit
22 September 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Arthur Askey was as they used to say a star of stage screen and radio.This was one of his later films,which he made for Jack Hylton,in the early stages of his film producing years,and which was directed by John Baxter,his last directorial effort.Some of Askeys films are reasonable particularly The Ghost Train and Make Mine A Million.However this film appears to be a rather weak remake of the Crazy Gang's "Frozen limits".It wasn't a great original and now it is even unfunnier,if that is possible.The film features many of his stage cast such as his daughter Anthea,and Glenn Melvin.It is a sad ending to a distinguished career of John Baxter who is one of the great unsung heroes of British cinema
