The Huggetts Abroad

Ken Annakin (1949)

U Certificate


Our Score
The Huggetts made their first appearance in Holiday Camp, making it somewhat apt that their farewell should be at the end of another sojourn. However, it was surely with relief not regret that audiences parted company with Jack Warner, Kathleen Harrison et al, as this brief series had clearly run out of steam. It's one contrivance after another once Warner chucks his job and hauls the family off to South Africa - the trek across the desert and arrest by French legionnaires are pushing things too far. Desperately unfunny and dull.


A family makes a lengthy and fraught journey across South Africa by truck when their son-in-law gets a job in the country. Comedy, starring Jack Warner and Dinah Sheridan.
