Movie Info

Based on Touch It Light, a play by Robert Storey, Skywatch is distinguished by a stellar British cast. Ian Carmichael is the officer in charge of a World War 2 searchlight unit. The archetypal comedy relief is supplied by none other than Benny Hill, while the "girl appeal" is handled by singing idol Tommy Steele. In Stalag 17 fashion, humor deftly dovetails into suspense and back again. Skywatch is also known as Light Up the Sky. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

A great little wartime drama starring (of all people) Benny Hill and Tommy Steele. Why isn't this gem better known?
