Starring: Cardew Robinson and Adrienne Scott
In search of romance, two young men follow two young women to Dover and the Continent beyond
This short comedy is something of a curiosity. It isn’t funny at all and is a strange mixture of semi-documentary about the port of Dover and the frolics of two young men and their old taxi cab, given a ridiculous voice-over by Spike Milligan. The documentary-style footage showing the construction of Dover’s new car ferry terminal is of interest as it shows railways in their simplest form – hand pushed tippler wagons on very basic track. A steam crane is also visible in one shot of the quayside.
