The Plank

1967

Eric Sykes
Director
Writer
Associated London Films
Production Company

Two incompetent builders find themselves short one plank of wood and set off to acquire said item.

A theme Mr Eric Sykes has returned to over the years, clearly inspired by the comic two reelers of the 20s. Peppered with familiar faces and familiar pratfalls.
