Smorgasbord of English comedy greats
13 January 2006 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

For anyone who likes classic Brit sitcoms of the 'As Time Goes By' type, this movie will leave you with lots of laughs and a feeling of bonhomie.

The larger than life James Robertson Justice, better known to fans of the 'Doctor' series of Richard Gordon book-derived movies, is always worth watching. He is one actor whose presence can keep a movie afloat no mater how bad the supporting cast. In this movie, he is ably supported by an excellent cast of English comedians, including the great Hugh Lloyd, Leslie Phillips, Ronnie Barker and so on.

Beautifully photographed unlike many other Brit movies of the 1960s, it holds up well. I'm not aware of a DVD release, but the print screened on free-to-air Sydney TV today was stunning. Look out for it!
