You Lucky People! (DVD)


Raucous Adelphi Collection comedy starring legendary stand-up comic Tommy Trinder as a reservist recalled to barracks for two weeks’ compulsory training

- +

A raucous parade ground comedy, You Lucky People! stars the man Roy Hudd described as "Britain's first alternative comedian", legendary stand-up comic Tommy Trinder.

Reservist Tommy Smart (Trinder) has made his fortune selling army surplus and is not best pleased to be recalled to barracks for two weeks’ compulsory training. Arriving with his trusty manservant, his dreams of a quiet life are shattered when he gets an ear-splitting welcome from his old enemy, Sergeant Thickpenny (Rufus Cruickshank), and the notorious RSM Brittain, who’s already decided Tommy is an "‘orrible little man". The war might be over but with a mountain of spud bashing to do, some highly irregular night manoeuvres to be carried out, and romance in the air, it’s just one skirmish after another around this highly active army base. Will Tommy make it back to civvy street in one piece?

Directed by Maurice Elvey.
