The Nautical Novice



The comedy depicting the misadventures of an inept weekend sailor was, in the words of the Ten Best judges, "a nicely contrived production with some genuinely amusing sequences ….with a well-sustained and effectively controlled comic performance by the central character of the novice who emerges as something of a cross between Harry Worth and W.C. Fields."


As a result of suggestions, additional and substitute scenes were shot in the summer of 1981 which, it was agreed, improved this popular film,


Later in the year this film won the Randall Cox Comedy award at the 1981 Welsh International Film Festival at Cardiff where it was very well received.
