The first of Norman Wisdom's films

What do you think of it? I really enjoyed it and loved the stunts he did and thought his character was hilarious. Also get to see a very young Joan Sims and Margaret Rutherford playing a shoplifter! Esma Cannon made a cameo appearance and it was a great watch.

I don't think it's the best of his films but it is remarkable to watch back now and note just how much was there, how much they got right, right from the start. Few film series, formal or informal, can boast that.
