Dir: Val Guest
Starring: Frankie Howerd and David Tomlinson
A navy frigate is sold to the Middle East and the crew try to turn it to profit by taking passengers aboard
This comedy was the follow up to Up the Creek (qv) and features a run-by of a Bullied ‘Pacific’ on the LSWR mainline at the head of ‘The Royal Wessex’. There are also some good shots of the Reading line side of Virginia Water station, masquerading as ‘Weyport East’, and a steam-hauled train is approaching in one scene but it is too far off to identify the locomotive.
