Confessions of a Window Cleaner Movie Review

askwith robin lea sheila

Robin Askwith looks as though someone once gave his face a severe punching. He stars as the “romantic” hero of four London-based comedies, in which he discovers new professions and different sets of women on the job. It's difficult to believe that Askwith could attract such frenzy from his female patrons, but he does have a certain awkward appeal. In spite of the relentless schoolboy-level humor, the film manages to garner some honest laughter, particularly in the family sequences co-starring Anthony Booth and Sheila White as Sidney and Rosie Noggett, and Bill Maynard and Dandy Nichols as Mr. and Mrs. Lea. Followed by Confessions of a Pop Performer (1975), Confessions of a Driving Instructor, and Confessions from a Holiday Camp (1977), all starring Robin Askwith as Timothy Lea and based on Lea's novels.

1974 m/C GB Robin Askwith, Anthony Booth, Sheila White, Bill Maynard, Dandy Nichols; D: Val Guest; W: Val Guest, Georges Lendi; C: Norman Warwick.
