Naughty Navy !

"Here is a typical little English comedy, of those Sellers did before he was an established international star! The film is enjoyable, has a good hearted humour and was loved by the audience (that's why there was a sequel made, but unfortunately without Sellers). And what a brilliant idea-some navy people in an almost forgotten ship, have turned their ship into a very profitable shop! When some official finally visits them, they have to "disguise" their business and keep it going! One of the funniest versions of corruption! sellers' is great, teamed with other well-known English character actors such as Wilfrid Hyde White and David Tomlinson. Recommended!"

"Be forewarned. I brought this DVD unbeknownst that a crisper print was going to be released later in the year. The picture and sound quality are a little muddy on top of that you have to navigate some pretty thick British accents. This is a slightly above average service comedy that most people should enjoy. For those of us who are Peter Sellers afficienados this film is indispensible in understanding the trajectory of his career. The film's ostensible star is David Tomlinson but don't kid yourself because this is Sellers' show. As an officer running a swag operation that includes everything from rum to livestock Sellers on a tub in dry dock Sellers is mesmerizing even in a routine venture like this."
