Overview

This theatrically-released feature represents a spinoff of the popular British television series of the same name, which screened on ITV to enthusiastic audience response from 1970 to 1971. The narrative concerns Walter Bingley (Wilfred Pickles) and Ada Bingley (Irene Handl), a middle-aged couple preparing to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, sans the knowledge that their loved ones are currently preparing a surprise party for them. The day starts to go awry when Arthur (Arthur English), one of Walter's colleagues, nearly ruins the surprise; the couple then lapse into a never ending series of catastrophes, including a quarrel over a blonde wig, Walter's discovery that he's lost the money for Ada's present, an accident that finds Walter being struck down by an automobile, and much more.
