Comedies set in factories and other blue-collar workplaces were popular in the 1960s, often exploring issues of class differences. Fun in the Factory also features an undercover plot, which goes on to become monumentally important in the 1980s and beyond. It's the story of a young college graduate who's sent by his father to go incognito in the family-owned factory, to check on the staff and to spot untapped talent. When the boot-licking manager of the firm finds out, he sends in his own spies, turning the plant into an infernal laugh-fair. Tam Sin-hung plays one of the spies and she proves herself an outstanding comedienne.
