Boxing in the parish hall
13 November 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

An English drinking song And The Same To You serves as a title for a quota quickie comedy that stars Brian Rix as a recently discharged sailor about to go into the church with the sponsorship of his uncle, Vicar Leo Franklyn. Their assignment is a parish where the parish hall has been sublet to William Hartnell as a health club.

But that's all a subterfuge because Hartnell runs a small boxing club out of the place. As it turns out Rix did some boxing in the British Navy and the place is in need of repair. What better way to earn the money than a pro bout or three.

Of course that involves keeping the subterfuge going away from the prying eyes of the Church Of England. Essentially that's the rest of the film, keeping up appearances and what it takes to do it.

Sid James is also in this film as a big time fight promoter. Both Hartnell and James have quite a bit of larceny in them and it's fun to see them trying to con the other.

Fans of Sid James and William Hartnell should like this one.
