Review

Our Score
The Boulting Brothers' sparkling comedy of industrial manners reunites many of the cast of their 1956 national service classic Private's Progress. The scene this time is a factory where Dennis Price and Richard Attenborough are once more knee-deep in shady dealings and in need of naive Ian Carmichael to unwittingly carry them through. Terry-Thomas also returns from the earlier film, this time playing the personnel manager driven to distraction by Carmichael's incompetence. But stealing the entire show is Peter Sellers as the union official chained to the rule book, whose faith in communism is inspired by thoughts of "all them cornfields and ballet in the evenings".

Summary

A dim-witted man looking for a career in industry gets a job at his uncle's weapons factory. He ends up an unwitting pawn of both the scheming management and the rebellious trade union, and becomes a central figure in a strike that has been manipulated as part of a dodgy arms deal. Satirical comedy, starring Ian Carmichael, Peter Sellers, Terry-Thomas and Richard Attenborough.
