(1964, Joan Littlewood) Sailor James Booth returns to find his house missing and wife Barbara Windsor with a pram, and then...Semi-improvised ensemble work, a mélange of Cockney rhyming slang, East End Yiddish, and underworld argot. Sole film by legendary theatre producer Littlewood (A Taste of Honey, Oh, What a Lovely War!). 35mm. Approx. 94 mins.
