Light Up the Sky!
Light Up the Sky! (also known as Skywatch) is a 1960 British comedy drama film directed by Lewis Gilbert and starring Ian Carmichael, Tommy Steele and Benny Hill. The film also features Dick Emery in a minor role.
During the Second World War, Lt. Ogleby (Ian Carmichael) is the troop officer in charge of a number of soldiers assigned to a searchlight and gunnery unit, somewhere in England. Ogleby visits only occasionally to check up on the unit, and in his absence Lance Corporal Tomlinson (Victor Maddern) is in charge, but he struggles to maintain some kind of order over the other men, and he frequently turns a blind eye to their lack of discipline and even their local thieving.
