The Plank Trailer

The Plank Trailer (1979)

17 December 1979 Comedy 28 mins

Classic short British comedy, full of stars, about two workmen delivering planks to a building site. This is done with music and a sort of "wordless dialogue" which consists of a few mumbled sounds to convey the appropriate emotion. TV remake of the 1967 short.
