Storyline

Some British citizens meet at the Venetian Lido where they go to play. Between them is naughty Mr. Corner, who under the false name of Mr. Pickles goes after Mimi so her friend's son can be free to marry his own daughter. Only, he does not know that the man is in fact already married to Mimi. Little does he suspect that back home they will all meet at his very home, Braystead castle, where fireworks are to be expected. Written by BSK

Primitive Acting & Direction
4 January 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only rated this movie 3/10 because of the primitive, melodramatic, over the top acting and poor production standards.It has two main scenes, an Italian Hotel and Mr Pickles' castle in England.The actors run around in typical farcical fashion either not listening to or misunderstanding each other.The screenplay is badly structured and for a DVD billed as a comedy - unfunny to modern ears.Yes I know this film is dated 1930 and talking pictures had only come into existence since 1927.The actors are all obviously still inculcated into silent screen melodramatic acting techniques.If this is the best Leslie Henson could produce, film going audiences at the time must have been extremely easy to please.
