Up the Creek is a classic British slapstick comedy starring David Tomlinson as the accident prone Lt. Humphrey Fairweather and Peter Sellers as scheming "bos'n" Chief Petty Officer Doherty. The Royal Navy promotes Lt. Fairweather to the command of the H.M.S. Berkeley after his rocket launching experiments turn out badly one too many times. The Navy is sure that sending Lt. Fairweather to command the oldest ship in the Navy's out-of-the-way reserve fleet will keep him out of trouble - and away from rockets. However, trouble finds Lt. Fairweather in the form of bos'n Doherty (Sellers) and the rest of the skeleton crew, who run things quite profitably without the help of a commanding officer. Anxious not to see their laundry servicing, pie making, animal keeping and racketeering operations disrupted, Doherty and the crew conspire to keep Lt. Fairweather occupied. Everything goes according to plan until the Admiral comes for a surprise inspection.
