When an aristocratic family hits hard times, they encourage their son Tony (Tommy Steele) to marry a Ruritarian princess (June Laverick) to get them out of trouble. Unfortunately, he has already married without telling them and turns to Cockney lookalike Tommy Hudson (also Tommy Steele) for help.
The “trading places” plot is one of the venerable old chestnuts of drama and the jerry-built sets and fifth-rate pop songs that adorn this tosh considerably scuff the sheen.
Gerald Thomas and Peter Rogers eventually made “cheapskate” part of the Carry On appeal, but here it simply seems tatty.
