Did You Know?

This was one of several British films of the early 60s made by the ailing British Lion company (or else a satellite production company connected with it) to be denied a release in the UK until well over a year after it had been completed. Although made in early 1963, it was not released until May1965 when it went out on a double bill with the similarly delayed Ring of Spies.See more »

Some Mothers do have 'em take one., 9 July 2000
Author: whisperingtree from Shropshire, England

Crawford has enjoyed a rather more varied career than is sometime realised by British viewers used to his ultra-popular role in the sit-com 'Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em'. This early outing about a daft as a brush youth's search for sex has similarites with the above but a drier and slightly black line creates an amusing little film that looks at British teen-life just before the Beatles. Some good names crop up here and there but it is Crawford who holds our attention.
