Michael Crawford was originally offered the role of Robbie Box, however declined due to his stage commitments with the revival of Barnum. The role subsequently was offered to, and accepted by, Ray Brooks - Crawford's co-star in 1965's "The Knack...And How To Get It". See more »
How to gamble for a living
Robbie Box is a heavy gambler, whose luck goes from the highs to the lowest depths. His girlfriend, Jan and daughter Debby stick by him for much of the way, but eventually leave for Australia only to come back. Robbie wins a club in a card game which itself is lost also in a card game. This is classic British comedy/drama at its best.
