Stars: Alec Guinness, Harry Locke, Frederick Piper | Director: Charles Frend

The last of a long line of sailors suffers from seasickness, and takes command of a decaying Victorian pier at an English seaside resort

The captain preferred the merry times on land to the mermaids at sea !

Reviews (1)

Quite an amusing comedy that had the misfortune to come at the tag-end of the Ealing classics and so seemed too mild and predictable. Perhaps it was a little staid. (Halliwell’s)
