My Mum has just left and has left me with a poser.
She remembers a film,possibly from the early 60s,possibly black and white,about 2 cars which meet on a country lane.One may be a Rolls Royce...The other not.
Neither car will back down the lane.Posh bloke may be Ian Carmichael,less posh bloke someone like Charlie Drake,or Ronnie Corbett.
I have been on IMBD and Wiki...Can't find it anywhere.
Any of you good folk got any ideas??
Many thanks !!

There was a film about that time called,I think, something like "The Yellow Rolls Royce". Had Terry Thomas in it, a comedy if my recollection is correct.

Just googled it, 1964 was titled "The Yellow Rolls Royce" but no Terry Thomas. I don't think it is the one you are looking for. I'll have a look through my film books.

Mum seems to think it was part of a trilogy of short films.
Eric Sykes springs to mind....

Was it School for Scoundrals with Terry Thomas and Ian Carmichael I wonder?

My Mum was sure Ian Carmichael was in it...
So I rang her and gave her the good news that it had been found,thanks to the forum.
(Starring Lesley Philips and Bernard Cribbins.)
She was pleased but unconvinced.
She said she remembered it was a short film,and there were quite a few of them,like a trilogy or something.
I put Impasse in IMBD and read out the blurb,and right at the end it said,'A re-make was made called 'The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins',in 1971...(Impasse was 'Pride')
Sloth,Envy etc were the others starring such gems as Spkie Milligan.
Pride starred Ian Carmichael and Alfie Bass.Just as my Mum had described it.
She was VERY pleased as it proves she isn't losing her marbles...
My lovely Mum is 82 and sharper than me...
I have ordered the DVD from Amazon.
Thanks for the input.
The End.

I have found a lot of the Play for Todays on You Tube recently.
The only thing is the person who uploads them uses a code so he doesn't get sussed by You Tube as he often gets his uploads taken off.
Our Day Out.(Sterling cast)
Abigails Party.(Starring Pam from Gavin and Stacey)
The Blue Remembered Hills.(Grown men in shorts)
The Flipside of Dominic Hyde.(Peter Firth from Double Deckers...)
Nuts in May.(Pam from Gavin and Stacey)
All the Boys from the Black Stuff episodes.(Gizza job...Yossa Hughes)
Brimstone and Treacle...(Sting and Denholm Elliot)
All excellent plays and most of them are now over 30 years old.
If I can figure out how to post a link I will...
