Girl On The Boat, The (1960)

Zany British jokester Norman Wisdom tried something different from his usual slapstick with this seagoing comedy romance set in the roaring ’20s.

Two men returning to England on a transatlantic liner fall in love with two fellow passengers, which leads to a series of hilarious comic situations.

Millicent Martin and Bernard Cribbins also star in this adaptation of the P.G. Wodehouse novel. It bombed at the box office and Wisdom must have thought he could do nothing right.
