| Minor but enjoyable comedy
Spike Milligan plays a postman transferred from his small country route to the Big Smoke (why is not adequately explained, but never mind). He quickly establishes himself as overly competent and gums up the works, also getting involved with the beautiful Barbara Shelley (here playing an unsuccessful modern artist)and some inept criminals. There is some fairly amusing physical comedy and some interesting location footage, especially of the Tube as it was in the early 60s. Worth a look if you have a taste for British B cinema.
