...but sufficiently amusing if you like British comedies from the '50s.
A thief hides his loot in an old barge while two nosy old ladies watch from their window. Plot complications ensue when he tries to retrieve the loot later on in the West-End section of London. The bungled attempts of the burglars provide mild amusement.
The story also includes a junk dealer who arranges for two girls to rent the barge when they're looking for an apartment to share. What they don't know is that the loot (twenty-thousand pounds worth of jewelry) is hidden beneath the floor boards on the barge.
It's played in good farcical fashion and the laughs are deserved because they're not hammered home as they sometimes are in these kind of British comedies. The players are all unfamiliar to me, but they do well to sustain the frantic pace of the slim story.
Summing up: Nothing special, but guaranteed to amuse.
