In Press for Time Norman Wisdom offered his version of the crusading reporter movie, though by 1966 time was running out for Norman's style of big-screen comedy. Perhaps a sign of his growing frustration with the formulaic nature of his pictures was that he stretched himself to play not just his usual underdog hero, but also his own mother and his grandfather, the Prime Minister. Wisdom also cowrote the movie in which, as a reporter in a small seaside town, he causes chaos for the council, organises a beauty parade and dresses as a suffragette. Though now nearing the end of his years as a movie star, Wisdom shows himself to still be as polished as ever at his own brand of good-natured slapstick. --Gary S Dalkin
This film represents superb all-round entertainment and if you enjoy the old British black and white comedies, this really is a must!
It is a about Norman, who is a delivery man for Grimsdale Dairies. He begins
becoming irate when a deliver for a larger company begins destroying there bottles
and leaving their own. This leads to a hilarious war.
It brings a tear to one's eye in times, and other times sad things are mixed with
Overall, this is a classically hilarious slapstick comedy, show Norman Wisdom's
