Opening credits prologue: BARFIELD, YORKSHIRE, IS NO BEAUTY. ITS PRIDE ARE ITS "RAG AND SHODDY" WOOL TRADES
IT FIRMLY BELIEVES THAT WHERE THERE'S MUCK THERE'S MONEY
A good "value for money" film demonstrating just how well the British (and even Yorkshire folk) can laugh at themselves. A good supporting cast headed up by Diana Dors who is irresistible to our hero Chayley from "oop north" and uses all her ample charms to help the poor lad to get value for his money. Unfortunately only a minor role for Leslie Philips in one of his earlier films.
