Norfolk villagers are outraged and take action when it's announced that the Air Force plan to use a nearby bird sanctuary for target practice.

Screen captures uploaded by Phil Wilkinson with uncredited comparison shots by Chris Ryan.

At Reelstreets we do not usually include inside location shots, largely, because they can be replicated in a studio for convenience. Tony Bennett is of the opinion that those in the film at The Pleasure Boat Inn were indeed filmed on location and as such he has provided some photographs taken during his visit in 2016. They can be viewed by clicking here.

Tony also advises that the Inn has another claim to fame. During some bad weather Prince Phillip was forced to spend a night there. He was in the bar while Andrew and Charles had a pillow fight upstairs. Mrs Turner, the landlady, without thinking, gave them a good ticking off before confessing, red faced, to Prince Phillip. He is alleged to have said Well done m'dear, I'd have done the same! Mrs Turner was the grandmother of a sailing friend of Tony's.

Also known as 'Fuss Over Feathers' (US Title)
