San Ferry Ann is a 1965 British sound effect comedy. Wordlessly, with soundtrack and sound effects, it tells the story of a holiday crossing from Dover to Calais.
A motley crew of British characters ride the San Ferry Ann to the shores of France, where they embark on a weekend of calamity.
A campervan family, led by Dad and Mum (David Lodge and Joan Sims), create chaos from the moment they set their tyres on the shore, resulting in frequent run-ins with the Gendarmerie. Lewd Grandad (Wilfrid Brambell) finds his own misadventures with a newly-acquainted friend, a crazy German ex-soldier (Ron Moody).
Also aboard for the ride is a saucy hitchhiker (Barbara Windsor), who causes a few heads to turn, including that of a fellow traveller (Ronnie Stevens), who pursues her affection with comic results.
The film appears on the 2021 Blu-ray anthology Futtocks End and Other Stories, along with A Home of Your Own and Vive le Sport, all of which, including the title piece, were produced by Kellet.
