A fun little British comedy

David and Catherine Robinson inherit an estate and decide to run a summer camp for the children of wealthy parents who are looking for a nice place to dump their children for the summer. The children are a rambunctious lot, especially the American boy. You can tell he's American from the little tough guy American slang he uses, an affectation that quite rightly annoys David. The film and it's characters are engaging throughout although stereotypical. All of the actors were very good indeed but hands down the most memorable and funniest performance is that by Joan Hickson, who was a riot as the drunken cook. It was also interesting to see two Miss Marple's - Hickson and McEwan - in the same movie. Hickson was also in another movie, 'An Alligator Named Daisy,' that featured another Miss Marple, the eccentric Margaret Rutherford. An amusing and pleasant movie that's worth a watch.

Hickson Steals The Show (Again)

A married couple (Phillips and McEwan) inherit a large old house, and quick as a wink, decide to turn it into a holiday home for rich kids. As the different children, and assorted staff descend, so the couple have to cope with adolescent yearnings, drunken domestics, troublesome teens and a busy-body alderman determined to secure the building for her own...

A strangely lack lustre effort from almost all concerned, with clunky juveniles, an intensely irritating McEwan, an unusually subdued Phillips and a shocking lack of pace. Only Irene Handl's delicious turn as the officious Miss Spicer, and Joan Hickson's gloriously bombed cook inject any interest. Most famous now as Agatha Christies's Miss Marple, it is indeed a crime of cinematic history that Hickson wasn't regularly nominated for best supporting actress gongs throughout her career. An unsung heroine of British moviedom if ever there was one, if you ask me!

Carry On Teacher Recycled

On watching this lame comedy it occurred to me that many of the elements of the previous years' "Carry On Teacher" were recycled in this film.The kids in both films go out of control in the first half.They then come together for a common purpose.In Teacher to keep Ted Ray at the school and in this film to save the home from being closed down.Leslie Phillips is of course a common element to both films.However the only performances worthy of note in this film are those of Irene Handel and Joan Hickson.It goes to show that even given a good cast and reliable director and first class writer that the team were still capable of churning out unfunny comedies between Carry Ons.Peter Rogers always maintained that the title was the star of the Carry Ons.that was patently untrue.Take,James,Williams,Hawtrey,Jacques out of a film and you end up with a very dull film.
