Firstly in answer to one reviewers comment I was around at the time but did not go to see this money.I knew a clinker.A viewing 50 years on confirms my judgment.This rather like Steptoe and Barge.Extremely disappointing script and a rather unfunny Corbett do little to help.However what really makes it a pain to sit through is the tedious and unfunny standoff at the lock between Hugh Griffiths and the waterway officials..I am assuming it was meant to be funny and not dramatic.Eric Sykes is truly awful as a upper class boat owner.Spotting the support actors is about the only way of passing a rather tedious affair.
