Watch The Sandwich Man - Alternative Versions.
I enjoyed this film very much - in a simple-minded sort of way. It's a
very strange mixture of different types of comedy, in fact you could
guess that the "script", such as it is, was written to fit whichever
film and TV actors Micheal Bentine could persuade to do turns for him.
There are some longeurs, especially a sequence about a heavy-handed
motorcycle cop, but never mind because a few minutes later another
famous face pops up to amuse us. My favourite characters were the Sikh
jazz musicians ("De Sihkers" - groan !) and Norman Wisdom's Irish
priest, who tries to instruct a group of boys about gymnastics. Half
the fun is in realising that in today's politically correct world,
characters like these would never reach the screen - more's the pity.
Incidentally, I can imagine Spike Milligan coming up with both the
above stereotypes, so maybe the falling out between him and Bentine was
more to do with personalities than material.
This film seems to have been made entirely on location around London
(and I spotted Tolworth Tower in the escapologist sequence, which is
near where I grew up), and you can tell it was made in a great hurry
with very little money.
But who was the intended audience? Surely in 1966, at a time when adult
cinema-goers were getting used to more sophisticated and subversive
films, this one couldn't have held much appeal. In fact its resemblance
to the Children's Film Foundation shorts (also funded by the Rank
organisation) makes me think that this was intended to be shown at
"Saturday morning picture shows" for kids. There is nothing here that a
child couldn't understand (though I'm not so sure about the
comment,"He's buying me a black jacket, not a red one ! He's kinky, not
a communist!"). And what on earth are those wrestlers at the very end
all about ???
This film is now available on DVD, curiously in 4:3 picture ratio - is
this the only print available ? and it's 90 minutes of innocent fun. If
you're still not sure what sort of comedy it is, think:
The Beatles' film "Help". The TV silent classic "The Plank". "Some
mothers do 'ave 'em"
