The Plank (1967) Written and
Eric Sykes. A classic short British comedy, full of stars,
it is about two workmen delivering a plank to a housing development and their difficulties with this.
This is done with mainly wordless dialogue, consisting of a few mumbled sounds ,
along with music. Together they convey the appropriate emotion.
TOMMY COOPER and ERIC SYKES (1967)
Many of the scenes are located in Barnes, London SW15.
The pictures relate some of the 1967 locations to that of 46 years later.
“Malthouse Passage” is mentioned a few times and is somewhat different in reality.
