A joyously inventive British “silent” comedy from writer/director Eric Sykes about the misadventures of two builders trying to transport a wooden plank through a suburb of London to a building site.
Sykes himself is “Smaller workman” to Tommy Cooper’s “Larger workman”, and, although not all the jokes are completely fresh, the fun is in the effective sound effects, and the spotting of comedy icons such as Jimmy Edwards (policeman), Jimmy Tarbuck (barman) and Roy Castle (man covered in garbage) in unfamiliar poses and surroundings.
