The orderly suburban life of a 1950’s English town is turned on its head when 17-year-old Jo Halliday (Julia Lockwood) writes a steamy bestseller called Naked Revolt, featuring characters obviously based on the local population.
In Jo’s book, her accountant father (Ted Ray) becomes an embezzler and a sugar daddy to his secretary (Dilys Laye), her mother (Jean Kent) is having an affair with a retired military officer who is a family friend (Lionel Jeffries) and her lovelorn aunt (June Jago) is pining for her employer, a doctor who carries on with all his women patients (Leslie Phillips).
Produced by Peter Rogers and directed by Gerald Thomas – the legendary duo responsible for the Carry On series of films – Please Turn Over also featured familiar comedic actors Colin Gordon, Charles Hawtrey, Ronald Adam and Joan Hickson.
