U Certificate


Our Score
A firm favourite in such TV series as The Larkins and George and the Dragon, Peggy Mount found films harder to come by. In the sixth of her ten pictures, she's joined by those other sitcom stalwarts Miriam Karlin, of The Rag Trade fame, and Dandy Nichols, Till Death Us Do Part's Else Garnett, as a trio of charladies who make a killing on the stock market through the tips they find among the office rubbish. With Harry H Corbett in support, this should have been quite amusing, but Michael Pertwee's ponderous script and the flat direction make it a one-joke bore.


Comedy about a charlady who pieces together financial information from discarded tips found in a rubbish bin, and uses them to make a killing on the stock market. Peggy Mount, Robert Morley, Harry H Corbett and Nigel Davenport star.
