Val Guest was also one of the writers on the excellent ‘Oh Mr Porter!’ starring Will Hay. Hay’s ‘Ask A Policeman’ was remade by Guest as ‘The Boys In Blue’ starring Tommy Cannon and Bobby Ball. The former is charming whilst the latter is charmless. Guest on this particular part of this messageboard, blimey. Next thing you’ll know Roy Ward Baker will be featured next.
