The great strength of classic British screen comedies often lies not so much in the stars of the story but in the supporting cast, drawn from a seemingly limitless supply of veteran character artists who enriched the British stage and screen of the period.
A typical example occurs in this film which, for the most part, is a pleasant and amusing comedy about a young London music department sales clerk and aspiring songwriter called Peter Weston (Donald Sinden) who brings a small pet alligator called Daisy into his stuffy English country home.
It unsurprisingly causes havoc and costs him the love of one girl (Diana Dors) but wins him another (Jean Carson).
All quite pleasant and further enlivened by two veteran farceurs in Stanley Holloway and James Robertson Justice.
Look out for a number of small (uncredited) appearances from the likes of Frankie Howerd, Jimmy Edwards, Patrick Cargill, Nicholas Parsons, Joan Hickson, Tony Selby and Bill Shine.
