We Joined the Navy is a 1962 British naval comedy starring British film icon Kenneth More, Lloyd Nolan, Joan O’Brien and Mischa Auer and directed by Wendy Toye. Lieutenant Commander Robert Badger is an excellent naval officer with one major problem. He speaks the truth at the most inopportune times, leading him to be transferred from ship, to shore, and then to instruct at the Royal Naval College. When his remarks are repeated by one of his students to his father, an anti-military Member of Parliament, he has one last chance to prove himself.

The Stranger Left No Card 

Directed by Wendy Toye

A strangely-garbed and eccentric-acting stranger arrives in a small English town. But, after several days of being in the town, the citizens accept him as a harmless, though a bit daft, member of the community. He then pays a visit to the town’s leading citizen and reveals himself as a man with the perfect plan for murder.
