Upper class ninny (Ian Carmichael) returns from the war imagining business success only to be the inadvertent cause of a general strike and the subsequent mess.
Celebrated for Peter Sellers’ doltish mini-Stalin, the great thing about the Boulting brothers’ strike comedy is it declares class-war on everyone, welcoming Britain’s oncoming consumer-age with a loud, caustic burp. It’s that cynical. And still funny.
Amusing premise, superb cast and still retains the laughs.
