Review

Our Score
A small-town boffin comes up with a swallowable version of the nicotine patch, and then wonders why the tobacco giants will stop at nothing to put a stop to his discovery. Notable only for its anti-smoking theme in a period where no one bothered about puffing away on a cigarette, this gentle comedy ends up a wasted opportunity, though the cast give their all.

Summary

A scientist invents a pill that will cure nicotine addiction, but has to deal with strong resistance from the tobacco industry. Comedy, starring Reg Dixon and Peter Martyn.
