You Lucky People

You Lucky People is a 1955 British comedy film directed by Maurice Elvey and starring Tommy Trinder, Mary Parker and Dora Bryan.[1] Originally titled Get Fell In, the film was renamed to match Trinder's familiar catchphrase.[2] It was shot in a rival French process to CinemaScope, called 'CameraScope', with the attendant publicity describing "the first feature to be made with an anamorphic lens in black and white! It's a camerascoop!".[3][2]

TV Guide wrote, "other than an occasional laugh, it's hard to find much worth recommending in this farce on British army life";[4] while BFI Screenonline describes how the film did steady business on its release, with Kine Weekly writing, "expertly handled by (Elvey) the doyen of English work hearty, gags both time honoured and topical and staging generous."[2]
