I hadn't seen anything with Charlie Drake since I was a child. This was on TV recently and I watched it out of sheer boredom. Gradually, I got engrossed in it and found that it contained moments of sheer genius.
I think that Charlie Drake is a forgotten comedy hero who beats his contemporaries hands-down when it comes to acting ability.
