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.

Trivia

When Mrs Kite and Cynthia are reading the newspaper reports about the strike, Mrs Kite briefly turns a paper over while setting it down. The bottom half is blank - the prop papers were made up only on the side that would be seen in the shot. See more »

Goofs

When Stanley is in the confectionery factory he feels ill, so he puts his hat on the conveyor belt. The spacing between the sweets and his hat is different when they enter the machine and when they emerge from the other side, and between a long shot and a close-up. See more »

Quotes

[in an induction programme at the Detto detergent factory]
Stanley Windrush: It might interest you to know, Sir, that I have a great aunt who tried Frisko once and she came out in an appalling rash.
Detto Executive: Is that so? It may interest you to know that my babies' napkins have always been washed in Frisko and that no child has shown a sign of a spot since birth.
Stanley Windrush: Oh. Of course, my aunt's rash was on her arm.

First-rate comedy
7 February 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Superior example of British comedy film making amongst a sea of duds. British film-makers never got it more right than here. Tremendous story and script plus wonderful performances from a whole host of character actors, especially Peter Sellers and Terry-Thomas.

Very funny satire on British industrial relations.
