Great nostalgia trip and some subtle satire!
27 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this classic film about 1965. The second time I saw it was in the Queen's Cinema, Union Street, Aberdeen (now unfortunately a nightclub). I had intended to take my then girlfriend (now my ex-wife) to see Carry On Cleo at the Cinema House (unfortunately now also a nightclub). However, I got the cinemas mixed up and we entered the Queen's Cinema. As soon as we sat down I was in raptures, saying, 'I've seen this before'. It's a predecessor of Eric Sykes 'The Plank' and is very amusing. The scenes where the Electricity, Gas and Water companies dig up the same piece of road, install what they are putting in and repair the surface, watched over by the same policeman with his trusty bicycle is a comment on the lack of co-ordination of utility companies which I assume still continues to this day. The water divining scene where it is discovered that the hazel twig is twitching to Bill Fraser doing what was natural in a trench before portable toilets is a joy. Also Ronnie Barker laying the cement only for the tea boy playing his transistor radio loudly to leave tyre tracks from his dumper truck as he distributes the tea. Eventually this happens so often that Barker eventually throws a wobbly and dances over and throws himself all over the cemented surface. I think it's Bernard Cribbins who is the stone mason producing the plaque as when he is nearly finished he gives it one last chip and, of course, it shatters. Eventually when Fred Emney (as the Mayor) unveils the finished plaque there is a slight spelling mistake (Pubic Subscription instead of Public) which leads to shocked gasps from the various dignitaries assembled for the ceremony. I have not seen this movie for decades and would love it to be issued on a DVD as I could watch it over and over again. By the way, the main feature was Mr Moses with Robert Mitchum and Carrol Baker which my girlfriend had seen before but I hadn't. Perhaps our different tastes in movies had something to do with our eventual marriage breakdown - but I suspect there may have been other factors!!
