Norman Wisdom offers a BAFTA Award-winning performance (for Most Promising Newcomer) in this 1953 British comedy about Norman, a poor department store stock clerk. Norman is continually fired and subsequently rehired by his boss, Augustus Freeman (played by Jerry Desmonde), thanks to a series of misunderstandings revolving around various shoplifters. What's more, these thefts provide the impetus for a meet-cute between Norman and his co-worker, Sally (Lana Morris), whom he has secretly been in love with for some time. When Norman discovers soon thereafter that Peggy, yet another co-worker, has been plotting to rob Mr. Freeman's store with the help of her suave, unfaithful boyfriend (who has been eyeing Sally for himself), he realizes that he might be able to kill two birds with one stone by alerting his boss to their nefarious plan. This, of course, is all just the beginning of a hilariously twisted web.
