Nearly a Nasty Accident is a 1961 British comedy film directed by Don Chaffey and starring Jimmy Edwards, Kenneth Connor, Shirley Eaton and Eric Barker.[1]

A mechanically minded but accident-prone aircraftman (Kenneth Connor) creates chaos and arouses the anger of a promotion-seeking Group Captain (Jimmy Edwards).[2]

Critical response[edit]

The New York Times called the film "essentially a one-joke comedy hanging on the thinnest of plots."[3] TV Guide said "Connor is a soldier who is obsessed with repairing things and is fascinated with anything mechanical, in this cute British comedy".[4]
