Superior Cast Manage to make this One joke film mildly funny
21 December 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

As has been noted in other reviews the basic premise of this film had already been used before.This film really does it to death.What might be funny once or twice ceases to be funny on the sixth and seventh occasion.The fact that this film remains entertaining is down to the other established actors in the cast including Jimmy Edwards,Richard Wattis and Eric Barker.Edwards gained fame on TV for his blustering incompetent headmaster,rather similar to Will Hay's character and this is the character that he plays to good effect in this film.Shirley Eaton plays the glamour role.I remember when I saw the film in the cinema there was a shot of her running naked up the stairs.alas this shot has been cut out of the copy I viewed.Not the best of comedies but then not the worst.
