I do vaguely remember actually paying to see this dross at the ABC Golders Green back in 1961.I want my money back.I saw it again last week and i have to say that it must be one of the unfunniestfilms produced in the 1960s by the British cinema and that takes in a lot of territory.The only decent actor in this was Kenneth Connor.Charlie Hawtry is totally wasted.As for Bob Monkhouse,did he really think that any of this was funny .At the time this was made he was riding the crest of his first wave of TV popularity.British film producers were in the initial stages of transferring TV hits to films.From this film there is a natural progression through to "On the Buses".All i can say is that if you want to watch a film which is 100% genuinely unfunny thane you must watch this
