What a Crazy World is a 1963 film directed by Michael Carreras from a script by Carreras and Alan Klein, from the latter's stage play.[2] Pop musical featuring a number of late 1950s and early 1960s pop acts, including an appearance by Freddie and the Dreamers. An unemployed working class lad Alf Hitchens has an on-off relationship with his girlfriend Marilyn, whilst trying to sell a song he has written. Some comedy scenes are not politically correct from a modern perspective. Michael Ripper can be seen in several amusing cameo roles bemoaning the "bleeding kids" he encounters.
