Odd Man Out

THANKFULLY FORGOTTEN but still rotten comedy with JOSEPHINE “NO APPOINTMENT” TEWSON as the boss of a sweet factory encountering long-lost brother JOHN INMAN – who’s gay! Except he’s not! He’s just very, er, festive! PETER BUTTERWORTH was in it, with a catchphrase that went “How’s your rock, cock?”

    Even less surprisingly, written by Vince Powell.

    Not with Harry Driver for this one?

      Harry Driver died in ’73, so it would have been a bit tricky for him to have collaborated on this one.
      The theme music sounded like an easy listening muzak arrangement of the On the Buses theme. Diddle-dink! Barneveld! Diddle-addle-addle-dink!

    OK I hadn’t realised he had died by the time this was written when I made the above comment.
