Light-hearted, Tommy Steele comedy vehicle which although enjoyable is extremely un-PC! The comedy comes from the farcical elements of the story (Tommy being mistaken for a toreador)and this works, on the whole. Famous for the 'Little White Bull' number. Rainy Saturday afternoon sort of a film - 5/10
