“Went to pictures and saw Up the Chastity Belt”
Fact: Frankie Howerd was a comedy god.
Fact II: I certainly knew how to pick dodgy movies to watch back in the seventies. My wife may say, that in 36 years, not much has changed.
Howerd plays Lurkalot, a poor servant who sells chastity belts on the side….. hang on, why am I bothering to give a plot synopsis, when the reality is any ‘plot’ was entirely superfluous to the relentless cheeky gags and smutty asides?
Some may say that I am still influenced by this kind of flick. Ooh, noooo, I really don’t what they mean, missus.
Again, no comment in my diary entry as to any movie-going companion, so I’ll have to guess that I went alone.
