“Went to A Home of Your Own – RUBBISH! – walked out half way through“
Later in life I would become a fully-fledged film reviewer for various magazines and publications.
I would like to think that my later critiques extended to hyperbole beyond a succinct “RUBBISH!”
“A Home of Your Own” was a British comedy film, made back in the mid-60’s, starring the (then) ‘cream’ of comedy actors including Ronnie Barker, Richard Briers, Peter Butterworth, Bernard Cribbins, Bill Fraser and Fred Emney.
Its run-time was a mere 45 minutes (which means I abandoned it around the 22-minute mark) and was a comedy of errors about the building of a young couple’s dream home.
It was remarkable (?!) inasmuch that it featured no dialogue whatsoever, just music and noise.
Are you intrigued? Here’s a trailer to show you what unbridled hilarity you’ve been missing out on…
It was a screened at college courtesy of the newly inducted Coffee Club “film committee” and shown – via a roll-up screen and dodgy film projector – in the main hall of Barton Peveril.
Quite the thrilling night out for hormonal teenagers I’m sure you will agree?
