‘Too much Jim Dale’ is the most searing criticism we can make of this first-of-the-medical-ones-in-colour but in mitigation it does have bags of the excellent Frankie Howerd, in probably his best film role not in a toga, a nicely demented turn by Charles Hawtrey, KW in full on bastard mode, that perennial mark of quality Peter Butterworth, one of those great ‘peasants’ revolt’ tables-turning denouements, and the obligatory top-line Creamcast including Deryck ‘I’m going to tell you how it’s going to be’ Guyler, Dandy ‘moo’ Nichols, BRIAN WILDE, Peter ‘Mowwy’ Jones and of course Dame Marianne Stone.
