The Girl on the Boat

Henry Kaplan (1962)

U Certificate


Our Score
Norman Wisdom tried something different from his usual slapstick with this seagoing comedy romance taken from a story by Bertie Wooster creator PG Wodehouse. It doesn't work for Wisdom, though it does for the less mannered professionals in support such as Richard Briers, Millicent Martin and Athene Seyler. It bombed at the box office and Wisdom must have thought he could do nothing right.


Two Englishmen attempt to woo the girls of their dreams aboard an ocean liner during the 1920s. Comedy based on a PG Wodehouse story, starring Norman Wisdom, Richard Briers, Sheila Hancock, Bernard Cribbins and Millicent Martin.
