Postman's Knock

1962

Robert Lynn
Director
MGM
Studio

Rural postman gets promoted to London just in time to inadvertently thwart robbers. Complications ensue.

Slapstick farce that poaches its opening from Jour de Fete. Not bad for forgotten British 60s comedy, but fails to exploit Milligan's lunacy although I'm sure he was pleased to get the girl.

Zillions of uncredited actors.
