Up The Creek
Peter Sellers – David Tomlinson 1958
Lieut. Humphrey Fairweather, R.N. (David Tomlinson), has gone too far. Much too far. The last of a series of disastrous attempts to prove to the Navy that his rocket invention is better than theirs only succeeds in convincing them that no guided missile station will be safe until he is out of harm’s way.But their problem is to decide what to do with the man.The problem is unexpectedly solved with the discovery that H.M.S. Berkeley, an ancient destroyer now ending her days as the oldest member of the “Mothball Fleet,” has been inadvertently left without a commanding officer for nearly two years.
