LITTLE BIG SHOT is a 1952 black and white British comedy in which an incompetent criminal tries to emulate the exploits of his late father, a renowned forger and safe-cracker.

Sex

The film includes infrequent very mild innuendo. For example, in one scene a middle-aged woman asks a male character, "What do you suppose secretaries are for?"; he replies,"Well, I used to have a pretty good idea but looking at you I'm not so sure now". In another scene a man is asked to put Mabel to bed; when he enquires, "Is she pretty?", he is told, "Mabel is the name of my car".

Smoking

There are scenes of adult smoking throughout the film.

Very mild bad language includes uses of 'blimey', 'blithering', 'darn', 'damned' and 'ruddy'.
