Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The path of true love never runs smooth, which is handy for makers of romantic comedies. Here it's the courtship between young naval lieutenant Dennis Price and his bride-to-be Liz Fraser which is in danger of running aground when Price is served with a paternity suit. A host of familiar British comedy talent fill out the cast including Irene Handl, Miriam Karlin and Frankie Howerd. Based on the stage play of the same name, this is unexceptional, though some enjoyment can be found watching the old pros go through their paces.
