I caught this movie on TV a couple of weeks ago, and found it a pleasant surprise. Very much in the style of slightly naughty UK comedies of the 60s, but showing a surprising feel for orchestral life (at least, as gathered from the gossip I've picked up). The orchestra's defiance of Kenneth Williams' conducting certainly raised a smile. I assume the orchestra was miming rather than playing live, which is a shame.
