I like Jack Warner and love the Huggetts, so some years back bought the DVD of their 4 films, but it's strange as my wife and I don't remember this one - maybe because the others were stronger and funnier films.................or maybe it's because old age really has kicked in now. :(

Anyway, thoroughly enjoyed this post war game of larks and the chance to see a 17 year old Petula Clark (playing more like 15), a gorgeous 18 year old Diana Dors and a same age Anthony Newley in a minor part hoping to look 15 too.

Kathleen Harrison as Jack's long suffering wife as always, and a very brief appearance again of an uncredited Esma Cannon in a bit part.

I have the box set of the Huggetts Collection. Very enjoyable films. With Kathleen Harrison & Jack Warner what could go wrong?

Do you believe in coincidences ?
I had never heard of Vote for Huggets or anything about them.

Then today, I watched an episode of 'Just good friends and Daphne compared the Pinners to either the Beverly hills billies or the Huggets.

It developed into a popular radio series after the four films had run their course.

Do you know, I had never previously noticed that the films came first! How interesting. Good mention!
