Chiselling at Chiselbury School.,
This review is from: Bottoms Up! [DVD] (DVD)
As a retired gown-wearing schoolmaster, I can report that headmasters never behave like the blustering, conniving Professor Jimmy Edwards does here, and students are never capable of mounting the kind of armed offensive his behaviour provokes.
It is indeed a farce, as its titillating (for the times) title suggests, tailor-made for Jimmy Edwards, and evolving from a popular radio sitcom. Frank Muir and Dennis Norden ensure that the script crackles with wit and donnish humour.
Sound and visual quality are excellent but there are no subtitles.
