Of interest as a period piece.
2 February 2003 | by andy-345See all my reviews

This is a film of little quality as a comedy musical. The main characters did not make me laugh and the musical numbers,apart from one in which the orchestra plays in the hall and staircase of a boarding house, are not memorable. The brightest spot is the few seconds in which Norman Wisdom is shown performing part of one of his stage routines. It is of some historical interest in showing the demob kitting out of ex-servicemen,in the shots of 1948 London,and in its portrayal of the attempts of demobbed servicemen to cope with civilian life.
