The ship, F 91, is the HMS Murray, launched in 1955 and broken up in 1970. See more »
When Puckle views the Earth from the spaceship (c. 128 minutes) he sees lines of latitude and longitude, and countries marked in various colours, just as an inflatable plastic globe atlas usually has. See more »
I swore I would never watch another Norman Wisdom movie. They are all much the same and any are a waste of time unless your standards for amusement are dangerously low.
In this one, he is tricked into joining the Navy, apparently only because the filmmakers had a deal with a real ship and its crew. Wisdom is again his standard character: part clueless disaster, part earnest innocent. Again you see his errors creating broad slapstick. He pushes men overboard, for instance. Ho hum.
The odd thing was how many such movies he made. There must have been a market for such a thing in the UK. There's no redeeming value here.
