Main cast

Critical reception

Allmovie wrote, "director Val Guest manages to extract new laughs out of such old setpieces as showing a snobbish audience being gradually won over by pop music. The principal attraction of It's a Wonderful World - to modern viewers at least, is the presence of Ted Heath, whose screen appearances were all too few and far between."[4]
