Edmund Gwenn is a retired naval officer who has acquired an old valuable relic by force.He is pursued to his west country retirement cotttage by 2 groups of Spaniards.The film revolves around their attempts to reclaim the relic and his to resist them and also the prospect of his daughter's marriage to a naval officer.Also there is a curse of death attached to the relic so Gwenn thinks he is doing everyone a favour by keeping it out of circulation,notwithstanding the fact that he reckons that it is worth about half a million pounds.This is supposed to be a farce but i have to say that despite the best efforts of Gwenn it is rather unfunny.It is clearly a quota quickie,photographed in instances as if the camera were in the stalls.At best a curiosity.
