This as an untypical Peter Rogers production with the exception of one thing,the music.Composed by Eric Rogers you can hear the Carry on themes in it.At the time Ian Hendrey was at the peak of his stardom.Alas drink would ruin his career and he would die young.In this film he is effectively nasty.Mind you most of the characters are unpleasant,and none are better of at the end of the film.One notable feature of this film is the extensive use of South London locations.There is a lot less traffic then..I would guess that this film would have earned an X certificate,however this film is pretty tame by today's standards.
