Audience Member The third film in the Confessions films, and they were gathering momentum and coverage in the press, both positive and negative. This was meant to have been the second film, but Confessions of a Pop Performer (1975) was selected instead to cash in on pop music. With this one, it was more of the same as usual, but there are some laughs to be had along the way as usual. After dabbling in the window cleaning business and the world of pop music, Timmy Lea (Robin Askwith) and his brother-in-law Sidney Noggett (Anthony Booth) try their hand at the competitive world of driving schools, with Timmy getting his licence to be a driving instructor, and no sooner than he's behind the wheel, he's got women getting into top gear with him, clutching his gear stick and taking him for a ride. But, Sidney and Timmy have stiff (oo-er!!) competition from rival driving school owner Mr Truscott (Windsor Davies), and his slimy associate Tony Bender (George Layton), but Timmy finds a kindred spirit in Truscott's daughter Mary (Lynda Bellingham), and despite Timmy always getting into sexual situations, the company is a success. It's the same as it has been for the last 2 films, with Askwith's bottom getting most of the laughs, but it manages to have some amusing cameos, like Irene Handl, Liz Fraser and Ballard Berkeley. It was starting to wear thin by this point, and more and more into very silly farce. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member first of all, the film came out in 1976 NOT 1981 and dandy nichols wasnt in it, she fell ill after WINDOW CLEANER and was replaced by DORIS HARE(on the buses).the site of the rival driving schools is now an italian resturant on shenley road/grovsenor road, borehamwood.and this also features the sexy linda bellingham and a classic performance by the late IRENE HANDL, one of her scenes was filmed in borehamwood on a road called PARK WAY. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member In this one our 'hero' tries his hand at being a driving instructor and shags lots of birds.
