There is not one character,one line of dialogue or one plot point that made me laugh.It seems that the only idea the director had was to get his cast to shout the dialogue as loud as possible so that the audience would find this funny.The eccentrics brought into populate the cast are neither funny or endearing they are just silly.It is difficult to believe that this film was distributed by the Rank Organisation.It must have emptied then many near derelict halls that were still open at this time.Audiences were plummeting at this time and Ranks only solution was to close as many cinemas as they could.Certainly one of the worst British films I have viewed and not worth a screening.
