Storyline

Hemel Pike is a canal barge casanova, aided and abetted by his illiterate cousin, Ronnie. Hemel has a girl in every town along his route, and each one is intent on marriage. He is finally caught when one of the girls, Christine, falls pregnant. Her protective father, a 'larger than life' character, who holds the canal record for drinking 29 pints of 'Brown & Mild' in a single session, is understandably upset by his daughter's situation...

Trivia

The narrow-boats Banstead and Bellerophon which were used in the film were built around 1935 and are still in existence (2005). Bellerophon became a horse drawn trip-boat and was renamed Iona. In this guise it made an appearance in the British TV soap Coronation Street (1960). Banstead was recently offered for sale as one of a working pair of boats with a GBP75,000 price tag. See more »

Oh My Gawd
15 December 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Firstly in answer to one reviewers comment I was around at the time but did not go to see this money.I knew a clinker.A viewing 50 years on confirms my judgment.This rather like Steptoe and Barge.Extremely disappointing script and a rather unfunny Corbett do little to help.However what really makes it a pain to sit through is the tedious and unfunny standoff at the lock between Hugh Griffiths and the waterway officials..I am assuming it was meant to be funny and not dramatic.Eric Sykes is truly awful as a upper class boat owner.Spotting the support actors is about the only way of passing a rather tedious affair.
