I'm an Explosive is a 1933 British comedy film directed by Adrian Brunel and starring William Hartnell, Gladys Jennings and Eliot Makeham. In the film, the son of an inventor accidentally drinks an explosive liquid.
The film was a Quota quickie made at Nettlefold Studios in Walton-on-Thames by the producer George Smith and distributed by Fox, enabling it to meet the annual quota for handling British films imposed by the government. It was based on a novel by Gordon Phillips. Despite its low budget and short running time the film proved a considerable hit with audiences on its general release.
