Part of Gaumont British Failed Strategy
9 April 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

In the 1930s Gaumont British decided to try and crack the American market.So in many of their films they featured American actors.In this film we have James Gleason and Charlotte Greenwood.Given that Gleason is a credited writer one must assume that he beefed up his part.Greenwood,was a marvelous eccentric dancer and she uses her fabulous long legs to good effect.The problem though is that in American terms these would be no more than names from the B list of actors.The British cast is quite interesting.Donald Calthorp has a large part but he looks very old and would die only 6 years later at 52.The farce here is broad and uneven and not particularly successful.Gaumont British went broke in 1938.enough said.
