A Touch Of The Sun

Eccentric hotel porter Bill Darling (Frankie Howerd), inherits a small fortune and jets off to the French Riviera for a quiet life. But a man can get tired of a life of luxury - and when Bill decides the beach life isn't for him, he returns to find the hotel up for sale. Plunging the last of his money into buying the property, Bill Darling finds he has just days to convince sceptical investors that the now dilapidated (and empty) hotel is a potential goldmine.

Frankie Howerd and Dennis Price are joined by an all star comedy cast including Miriam Karlin, Richard Wattis and Alfie Bass to ensure your stay at the Royal Connought is packed full of laughs, while chambermaid Ruby (Ruby Murray) is on hand in the ballroom to deliver two enchanting musical numbers 'In Love' and 'O'Malley's Tango' - in her first big screen appearance!
