Antique farce
15 September 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is an adaptation of a stage play by Ian Hay starring the long forgotten Leslie Henson.Quite frankly there is very little entertainment to be had from this film.In fact i defy you to laugh once.The humour is by and large slapstick .If there was any verbal humour then i must have missed it.I think that this can only be of interest to anyone who would like to see what British stage plays of the 1930s resembled or Gordon Harker fans,of whom i am one.Here he plays a butler,a roe he would appear in many times including his last screen outing nearly 30 years later in "Left Right and Centre".Also featured is that doyen of character actors , Wally Patch who probably appeared in more British films than anyone else.Here he appears as a bookie,which i believe he was for a time.So if you are looking to be entertained avoid this film.
