What a carry on Peter Butterworth is a boxer
21 November 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film is a sort of portmanteau.Letters lost 15 years before being finally delivered by the post office,now that's a likely story.As with all such films they rest entirely on the individual stories.I felt the the film was least successful when it lapsed into trade by and more successful when it kept matters light such as the episode with the wife planting a stooge so she could get a divorce with a big settlement.The biggest surprise was the last story.Peter Butterworth plays a boxer who pays dearly when he crosses a fight fixing gang.He has such a launch that it makes the whole idea pretty daft.Generally the film is reasonably entertaining.
