This film has a good believable story and maintains the point all Englishmen are pirates or smugglers - it's in the blood!
Innocent newly wed couple leave London go to boat at coast - lovely thing she is and the boats nice too - however she , his wife, is no good at 'driving' and smashes into poor old Kenneth More in his little sort of rowing boat thing , sinks him in minutes
takes him, dripping wrapped in blanket, not simply back to shore but to his destination , France, money changes hands with a chap (Frenchman) who owns a certain shop - goods are delivered to couple's boat, Customs what Customs ? what seems a plain straight forward story twists and turns with all sorts of characters , a thoroughly delightful tale which leaves one feeling happy but sad - sad this lovely story is over.
Watch out for Michael Trubshawe (of 'Titfield Thunderbolt') as Redworth, a first class performance.
