Classic short British comedy, full of stars, about two workmen delivering planks to a building site. This is done with music and a sort of "wordless dialogue" which consists of a few mumbled sounds to convey the appropriate emotion.

The Plank with all the stars signatures was sold at an auction in Colchester on 5 December 2011 for £1,050. It had been previously won by a family in Clacton for being the 100,000th visitors at an Ideal Homes Exhibition. See more
The opening credits of the film begin with a shot of the plank itself, with the caption "Starring The Plank". This leads on to a succession of credits, some of which try to squeeze into the frame, and others which are sung by the cast. The final entry is a credit, also spoken by Eric Sykes, which reads: "Oh! ... And The Cat!" See more
