A Little Goes A Long Way
23 August 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Charlie Drake became a star through his work on TV.Firstly on children's TV with Mick and Montmorency and then The Worker.His origins were in the music halls and his speciality was slapstick.Given that he was short and could sing one assumes that Associated British were trying to see if he could rival the box office success achieved by Rank's Norman Wisdom.Now I am not a Wisdom fan but Wisdom was far superior to Drake.It also appears that Rank spent more money on Wisdom than Associated did on Drake.Everything about this film is shoddy.The film is studio bound with poor acting and a truly awful script.Drake tries the facial tics that worked for him on the small screen but they are simply excruciating.If there was ever any humour in this film now it has evaporated so that the film is virtually unwatchable.
