Synopsis

A Will Hay double bill. In 'Ask a Policeman' the police force of crime-free Turnbotham Round consists of Sergeant Dudfoot (Hay) and officers Harbottle (Moore Marriott) and Albert (Graham Moffatt). When the commissioner suggests that they are no longer neccessary, they set about engineering a crime wave in the village, so that they can be seen to be solving it. Their attempts fail, until they stumble upon a genuine case of smuggling. Whilst in 'Boys Will Be Boys' prison teacher Dr Smart-Alec (Hay) steps up the career ladder to become headmaster of Narkover public school, but his innate stupidity soon begins to create havoc. Hay dons a mortarboard on screen for the first time, in the bumbling headmaster role that was to become his trademark.
