Summary

A comedy short with very little speaking. Graham Stark and John Junkin have a new elevated platform to work with but still manage to get into lots of trouble. Lots of celebrity appearances.

Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Unsung character actor Graham Stark made his debut as the writer and director of this fond, if laboured tribute to the silent slapstick style of the Keystone Kops. Comedy stars like Peter Sellers, Morecambe and Wise, Bob Monkhouse and Bernie Winters, crop up in cameo roles, as does movie star Michael Caine. But the main focus falls on the rivalry between Stark's council workman and fireman Norman Rossington, as they use their elevator vehicles to woo typist Julia Foster. The mugging mime and the excessive crane shots soon become wearisome, but essentially this is harmless fun.
