a whole lot of feeble jokes
9 February 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film has a copyright date of 1959.It is similar to The Plank,save that it is in colour,has dialogue and is totally unfunny.In fact the only reason for watching this is to see Arthur Lowe at the peak of his TV fame.These half hour films were made in the late sixties when double bills were being phased out.They would be described as "full supporting programme".They too would disappear when the Thatcher government abolished Eady levy.The problem is that there is not one decent joke in this film.so its rather brief running time of 27 minutes feels more like 270 minutes.There are lots of familiar faces such as Benny Lee,Leslie Dwyer,Victor Maddern and Bill Maynard but they cannot bring this film to life.
