A pools winner is targeted by a forger
This obscure comedy is referred to as ‘a terrifyingly bad film’ by Peter Sellers. It was not profitable on initial release and was eventually re-issued for distribution abroad in 1960 as a cut-down 55-minute version under the title Penny Points. Many sections were removed, and some additional unrelated material was incorporated from a short comedy entitled Let’s Go Crazy, which had also featured Sellers. Despite all this, the film features good opening shots of Brighton station with 6 PAN EMU’s in the platforms, though the railway scenes open with a brief run-by of 2 BIL EMU’s working a headcode 12 service. There is also a car chase sequence towards the end that passes over Brighton Road level crossing in Crawley.
