The fact that there at least 5 writers on this, George's penultimate film,shows that they were running out of ideas.Some of the set piece scenes,such as that with psychoanalyst, and that with the murderer.These are laugh free zones.This type of film simply didn't suit George.By the way Caryl and Munday were music hall artists who featured at the Lonion Palladium in the first Crazy Week which eventually became the Crazy Gang.
