A recently married man believes that a talking South American Parrot is a reincarnation of his predecessor
This comedy was a follow up to the 1959 film The Night We Dropped a Clanger and is based on Basil Thomas’ play The Lovebirds. The film features a scene where Brian Rix pursues the parrot to a railway station where it is accidentally put on to a train. Despite the station name reading ‘Brighton North’ this unfortunate incident actually takes place at Chessington North. There is a continuity error with the train though. When it arrives it is made up of a formation of pre-war Southern Railway EMU’s, only to have then become 1940s-built 4 SUB stock in the platform scenes that follow!
