Irene Handel in a class of her own
10 November 2012 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

I have to say that Irene Handel is one of the great British comedy actresses of the 20th century even if she only specialised in supporting parts.Her mere presence is guaranteed whenever she is on screen.When i did laugh at this film it was because of her.As for the rest well Leslie Phillips does his usual act,Bob Monkhouse his usual smarmy character who is so difficult to warm to and Shirley Eaaton's attributes are well to the fore.It is reasonably amusing for the first half hour then it starts to run out of ideas.By the end it is just silly rather than funny.I was interested to see the Silver City planes.I flew in those with my family on a couple of times and they were a quick way to get your car to France.
