Up the Front

1972

Bob Kellett
Director

Follow up to Up Pompeii. Strained 70s vehicle for Frankie Howerd. In this one set in WWI he succeeds in having an invasion plan tattooed upon his derriere. Awful and funny as only Brit 70s comedies can be. I think Dora Bryan playing Cora Crumpington is worth the price of admission, but that's me.
