Mr. Huggett goes to the council
7 February 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In this last of the Huggett Family series, Jack Warner and Kathleen Harrison have returned to the United Kingdom after their African sojourn in their previous film where oldest daughter Dinah Sheridan and her husband Jimmy Hanley went to South Africa for his new job. The Huggetts now with only two daughters at home Susan Shaw and Petula Clark are facing new challenges as Jack Warner decides to go into politics.

It all starts quite innocently enough when Warner writes a letter to the editor proposing that a bit of land be used to provide some kind of recreation park for use of people at all stages of life. Unbeknownst to him the missus owns a section of that land with her cousin Diana Dors and her husband and they see a chance for a quick killing.

If you think this sounds a bit familiar I think that someone saw Mr. Smith Goes To Washington and rewrote it a bit for the Huggett family. So when Huggett stands for the local community council against David Tomlinson it all blows up into a scandal. Like Jimmy Stewart who is being used by some unscrupulous men, Warner gets out of it with the help of friends and family.

Things wouldn't be complete without a song from Petula Clark who in those years was the UK's answer to Deanna Durbin.

The Huggetts ended their saga on a good note.
