A group of students at an elite music school decide to share a flat in order to cut their living costs and have somewhere to practice together. They get into quite a few scraps and adventures, including impersonating a celebrity quintet. However when Mervyn Hughes accidentally sells a catchy pop tune to an advertising agency he risks losing his scholarship unless he and his friends can raise the money to buy the rights back.

The conductor's joke about the girl's harp sounding like skeletons making love on a tin roof is actually a paraphrase of a quip from famed British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham, who described the sound of the harpsichord (NOT harp) as being like "skeletons copulating on a tin roof." See more »
When Mervin (Leslie Phillips)writes his tune he is drunk and the story about it gets sent to a music paper gets printed and published and sent to the shops and gets read all before his hangover from that time wears off. See more »
It,s Interesting that the reviews here criticising it are British and the one who gives it the thumbs up is American and I agree with him this film is very good. It,s less smutty than the carry on films and not really slapstick It,s just good clean fun.
This may not be the greatest film ever made but it is good. A great cast and they do deliver they Hit the Right Note It,s funny and well written, Jill Ireland appears in one of her first roles as does Jim Dale Who after this film got the recommendation of Kenneth Williams to join the Carry on team, (His first Carry On, Cabby, wasn,t originally a carry on).
It seems that the British are the first to run British films down, thats sad.
