Doctor At Sea

DOCTOR AT SEA —-second in a series of seven ‘Doctor‘ comedies from Britain, this arthritic patient is notable only for introducing Brigitte Bardot to English-language features.  Otherwise, it’s Dirk Bogarde (who starred in four of the seven) and dated silliness rather too twee to squirm through today, despite a cast that includes James Robertson Justice, Maurice Denham, George Coulouris, Geoffrey Keen and Michael Medwin.

A 1955 hit in its native country, this operates on the comedy gurney where a decent single bachelor doesn’t know what in heavens to do when presented with a drop-dead beauty who is both available and interested.  Now, take that dead horse, drag it back six decades to genteel-mannered England and see how much (other than BB) you can put up with. 93 minutes worth, directed by Ralph Thomas.
