Storyline

After twenty-five years working at Belcher's Brewery, Alf Larkin is given a pub to manage. But the Earl Osbourne is in trouble, mostly because the Earl himself has by tradition to give his own very quaffable beer away free once a quarter. The Larkins come up with various tricks to gain custom, not realising a proposed new road means the place could soon become a goldmine anyway. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Goofs

Early in the film Eddie arrives home with his Scout Troop and his mother comes out of the house and hurries Eddie indoors. He goes in the front door on the right hand side of the property, with downstairs windows to the left. However, from the interior scenes, the front rooms and door have appeared to change positions.

An Ailing(not Ealing) Comedy that finally dies!
3 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Why was the British film industry always in trouble? Watch this "comedy" and much of the mystery will be resolved. Meretricious tripe which wouldn't raise a laugh in a hyena colony- Peggy Mount screaming abuse at people ; David Kossoff doing his folksy "the thinking man's Mr Pastry" act;and a reasonable cast of character actors who struggle with an infantile script and dig their own cinematic graves as you watch.

Even allowing for changing tastes and different social mores how anyone ever found any of this funny is simply incomprehensible -makes the test card seem like the Marx Brothers!

Unfortunately this is not an isolated example and just represented yet another nail in the already over- secured lid of British cinema's coffin.
