Storyline

Naive Stanley Windrush returns from the war, his mind set on a successful career in business. Much to his own dismay, he soon finds he has to start from the bottom and work his way up, and also that the management as well as the trade union use him as a tool in their fight for power.

A masterful black comedy of worker/management relations.
19 October 1998 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

The characters from "Private's Progress" return from the war to continue with their peace-time work. Naive Stanley Windrush causes an industrial relations disaster when his workmates decide he is too eager in his job. However, the labour union reluctantly decide they have to back him...

An hilarious pastiche of 50s class struggles, with a brilliant performance by Peter Sellers as the union shop-steward, this film will have you laughing if you have liked any of the Ealing comedies, are a Peter Sellers fan, or just think that maybe the means of production should be controlled by the state after all.
