Unsatisfactory remake
20 October 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It was not till i looked at the entries for this film and Sailor Beware that my suspicions were confirmed,that this film was a remake of Sailor Beware.Albeit that the plot has been changed ever so slightly.Even Cyril Smith plays the same role as in the original.The problem is that if you have seen the original then unfortunately there is not a great deal of point in watching this film as it is inferior in most ways.The cast is not as good and the funny lines are few and far between.Dennis Price has star billing but is only present for about 10 minutes.The cast tries its best but it has to be said that Marjorie Rhodes is no match for the original battle axe,Peggy Mount.It is difficult to understand why Hammer lurched out of horror to make this film.Maybe it shows the straits to which the film industry had fallen at this moment in time.
