Storyline

The return of the Huggett family. After first meeting the family at the Holiday Camp, this is on the home front. The Huggetts are about to have their first telephone installed. In today's high technology age, it is an interesting look at the late 40s, when all this was brand new. Written by mike.wilson6@btinternet.com

Here Come the Huggetts review
15 May 2020 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

The Huggetts return from their holiday to all sorts of domestic strife in this sequel to 1947's Holiday Camp. They've lost a son somewhere along the way (and picked up another daughter I think), but nobody seems to notice. The arrival of shapely Diana Dors doesn't go unnoticed though, especially as she's responsible for Dad (Jack Warner) being demoted at work. The humour is fairly mild for the most part, but Kathleen Harrison's panicked reaction when the family's new phone rings for the first time is hilarious.
