Next to No Time | 1958 | Kenneth More, Betsy Drake

Charming, whimsical comedy starring Kenneth More as a hapless inventor who has to try and persuade a wealthy industrialist, Roland Culver, to invest in his scheme while on board the Queen Elizabeth, which is sailing for America. A superstition about the ship’s ‘lost’ hour every day inspires the introvert inventor.
