Based on David Stuart Leslie's novel Two Left Feet is a story about Alan Crabbe (Michael Crawford), a callow youth desperate for a date with any girl who can offer him the experience he lacks. Every time Alan tries a manful stride into the jungle of sex, his two left feet turn the attempt into a trip-and-stumble. Then he meets Eileen (Nyree Dawn Porter), the new waitress at the corner cafe, who signals unmistakable messages with her large inviting eyes.Written by

This was one of several British films of the early 60s made by the ailing British Lion company (or else a satellite production company connected with it) to be denied a release in the UK until well over a year after it had been completed. Although made in early 1963, it was not released until May 1965 when it went out on a double bill with the similarly delayed Ring of Spies. See more »
Crawford has enjoyed a rather more varied career than is sometime realised by British viewers used to his ultra-popular role in the sit-com 'Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em'. This early outing about a daft as a brush youth's search for sex has similarites with the above but a drier and slightly black line creates an amusing little film that looks at British teen-life just before the Beatles. Some good names crop up here and there but it is Crawford who holds our attention.
