Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBB.5United Kingdom, 1954.  Group Film Productions Limited.  Screenplay by , , based on the book by Richard Gordon.  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Hilarious comedy that inspired a series of sequels.  arrives at medical school prepared to work hard, only to find himself in a loony dorm surrounded by playboys and loafers.  They might be doing their best to pass their exams, but they’re also working very hard to seduce every nurse (and pretty much any other woman beyond that) in order to get the most out of their education. Great characters, witty writing and a snappy pace make for a comedy that still feels pretty fresh.   is delightful in a cameo role as a high society woman who nearly bankrupts Bogarde in his quest to get laid.
