One to instantly forget.

Charlie Drake isn't the kind of comedian people would want to remember in this day and age. His style leaves a fair bit to be desired and he faded from memory LONG before he died. "Petticoat Pirates" is one of only a handful of films that Charlie Drake made and a good thing as well. Like Arthur Askey, Drake wasn't suited to film and the above movie makes this painfully obvious. The trouble with comedy and with comedians in general, is that you either like what you see or you don't. Charlie Drake falls into the latter category. "Petticoat Pirates" is cringeworthy to sit through. There are hardly any laughs and Drake gets on my nerves rather quickly.
