This is a remake of the 1932 film The Midshipman. This just shows the forward thinking attitude of Associated British.This a farce without a funny line or situation presumably relying on the star power of Ronnie Shiners name to draw in the customers.Warren Mitchell in a dark make up supposed to be an Asian steward and a fresh faced Richard Briers,are two actors who would put this film behind them and find fame on tv.
