British comic Norman Wisdom pulls a Peter Sellers and plays several different parts in this hilarious escapade.
The story centres on Norman Sheilds, a newspaper seller outside Westminster tube station, whose embarrassed grandfather (who just happens to be the Prime Minister) has him sent to the seaside town of Tinmouth to work as a local reporter.
Rather than reporting the news, though, Norman makes it, getting involved in scandalous adventures.
After causing chaos at a local council meeting and causing the demolition of a new house Norman tries to organise a beauty pageant.
A slapstick tale of corruption in high and low places.
