The Small World of Terry Blessing

Revue star Tony Tanner is forgotten today but starred in a handful of early sixties movies and in 1966 was entrusted with taking over the lead from Anthony Newley for the film version of 'Stop the World I Want to Get Off!'

It's easy to imagine Newley in this, although Tanner also rather resembles Norman Wisdom scurrying about Soho in this strange departure for director Vernon Sewell between thrillers which now seems as long ago as the Victorian era. However, one of the girls at the night club Tanner visits mentions getting home to see 'Coronation Street', which reminds us that it's all just within living memory.

The small world of Tony Tanner

This film reminds me of The Small world of Sammy Lee only rather lighter. Tanner and Newly seem interchangeable.

The film starts out quite well but once the small boy is introduced it goes downhill rapidly. Furthermore both Tanner and Stark become extremely irritating.

The climax is rather a letdown.

Strictly forgettable

Not much of a film, this one, and I can see why it was forgotten. Chiefly of interest to see London during the era, complete with billboards showing the latest films and racks of pristine Pan paperbacks in the shops. The backdrop is pure working class kitchen sink drama as evinced by Joan Sims' woefully underused landlord, but the tone is light comedy. Tony Tanner was an unknown to me and remains so. Some of the scenes with the streetwise kid are fitfully amusing, but the whole thing is strictly forgettable.
