You're Only Young Twice

You're Only Young Twice

Terry Bishop (1952)

U Certificate


Our Score
This theatrical comedy was shakily brought to the screen by an unlikely alliance of producers, including documentary pioneer John Grierson, then involved in a publicly funded outfit called Group 3, based at studios in Southall. Dealing with various shenanigans at a Scottish university, the story involves mistaken identity, Celtic poetry, horse racing and the rigging of Rectorial elections. Blink and you'll miss Ronnie Corbett in what, of course, can only be described as a small role.


A secretary brings sweeping changes to a stuffy university, while a professor and his son are determined to enforce a moral code. Comedy, starring Diane Hart and Charles Hawtrey.
