"Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width"

I just suggested that TCM show the movie "Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width," and was wondering who, if anyone (other than myself) has seen this movie, and your opinion of it. Do YOU think it should be shown?

I thought you were probably a whacko who was playing around and suggesting pornographic movies. Still,out of curiosity, I did look it up. This is what IMDb says about it.

 

Genre: Comedy

 

Plot Outline: Sitcom about two tailors, one Catholic and the other Jewish. Would never get made today as was totally UN PC.

Series Credited cast:

John Bluthal....Manny Cohen

Joe Lynch .... Patrick Kelly

Cyril Shaps.... Rabbi Levy

 

Apparently it was a sitcom circa 1967, IMDb had nothing about a movie of that same title. I apologize for thinking you were a whacko. (Guess I should elevate my thinking processes.)

I agree, I remember watching this sitcom on TV when I was a kid. I would also like to see some of the 'Carry On' films on TCM. There were also a few other films spawned from British sitcoms of the period like 'Til death us do part' and 'Porridge', and no doubt a lot of others. However these movies might be considered a little 'Too British' for American audiences. The humor may be a little over their heads, or under their radar, or whatever. There were a lot of 'Carry On' films, some of them were genuinely funny and a few were downright moronic. But you never know, Benny Hill was very popular in the US.

I'm also big fan of the "Carry On" films, but I believe there is a problem with the American TV rights so that's why you don't see them here. As much as I love 'em I have to admit that they are pretty low-brow and will never be mistaken for an Ealing comedy. I also find that people either love them or hate them.

 

If you are really interested, Anchor Bay Entertainment has released "The Carry On Collection" which includes the first twelve films and a documentary. The quality is great.

markfp2,

 

"Carry On Theater" was broadcast on my local TV when I was a young'un.

 

I love them. I fondly remember them as 'comfort comedies'--goofy fun.

 

Thanks for mentioning a collection of "Carry On" films are now on DVD. I would never have thought of looking up availability of the "Carry On" series.

Thanks for the info markfp2

 

Did you know that some of these movies are being shown at sexual harrassment seminars in England - To combat, not to promote - But I still find these movies very funny. I don't mind climbing into the gutter once in a while.
