Quotes

[Sam Field is masquerading as a fictitious student John Sam. The instructor is not impressed with his efforts in class]
Dental Instructor: Would you like to hear the substance of my report to the Dean? "Lecturer's Report, 18th instant. Dear Sir. The student John Sam appears to me to be the epitome of all that is retrogressive and reprehensible. He is vacuous, indolent, disputatious and completely illiterate. He is, in your own splendid phrase, Sir, 'a perfect coagulation of the plasma'."

What is worse,having a tooth pulled or watching this film? Probably the later.The film has a reasonable cast.However Bob Monkhouse is not to everybody's taste,certainly not mine.What's worse it is clear from the writing credits that he bore part of the blame for this mess.Rather surprisingly Val Guest wrote the screenplay but did not direct..Ronnie Stevens has a large part and he is really not up to it.Kenneth Connor gives his usual reliable performance but even he cannot make this film seem funny.Peggy Cummins,near the end of her career is the female lead.This film tries and fails to latch onto the coat tails of the successful Doctor series.
