Guy Hamilton directs this 1950s British drama following the rise to fame of a young comedian. Charley Moon (Max Bygraves) first discovers his ability to entertain during World War II, when he appears in a military concert and captures the attention of Harold Armytage (Dennis Price), a pre-war entertainer. When victory is won and the unit disbanded, Harold suggests to Charley that they team up and form a comedy duo. Though times are hard and the pair must battle to be heard in rowdy venues, they build their confidence to such an extent that they decide to head to the bright lights of London. How will they fare in the capital?
