Kenneth Mores film career goes down the drain
7 November 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

After this feeble comedy Kenneth More didn't make another film for 2 years.There are a number of theories why this happened.After all other contemporaries managed to maintain their careers for years to come.He must have reached slightly desperation stakes to accept this role.It starts off reasonably amusing whilst the film focuses on the British Navy.However when the script takes him to the American navy.Clearly an attempt to sell the film to American distributors highlighted by the parachuting in of two American actors.The only diversion is seeing so many familiar character actors in small parts.The problem for Kenneth More was that he was a one part actor.So when that part disappeared,so did his career.
