One of my favorites
I first saw this film on January 1, 1957 at Boston's Exeter Street Theatre,in those days the "temple" of British Cinema. Subsequently went to see it every Friday afternoon for a month even taking friends to see it. A very funny and witty film. Also, a very good historical look at early TV in Britain in the fifties.

Kay Kendall and Peter Finch great but look for an excellent performance from Muriel Pavlow-a wonderful actress who was much more than one of Mr. Rank's "English Roses". She is still acting and going strong.

Have only seen this film on television in the Boston area twice during the 1960s. I have been told that since it makes fun of television, there is some sensitivity to broadcasting it. Would anyone know if it is available on tape or DVD? THANKS!
