Big fan of Bob Monkhouse, but comedy actor he ain't I'm sorry to say and the only saving grace in this was Irene Handl.

Almost like a Carry On film and made worse by not having the Carry On stalwarts in it. For example I'm sure Barbara Windsor would have made a better job of it than Shirley Eaton. Having said that, I've just realised that Sid James had a small part in it, and Kenneth Connor an even smaller part.

Apparently the last film of tiny Edie Martin - "Too Many Crooks" and "The Lady Killers" most notably.

Poor.

Watched this on TPTV last week. Was quite looking forward to it, having seen the plot and the cast. A little disappointed but, like you, thought Irene Handl was the best part of it.

I really enjoyed this one. Would have been even better with some more regular Carry On faces, but I found it really entertaining and laughed a lot.

Oh sorry Aaron! Done it again putting this under "Films" sub. "This is the forum in which to discuss British comedy films", should have started this thread under "General Discussion" of course. :$

The title of this thread is misleading. Had assumed it was a competition :-(
