This is a Twickenham production that clearly has ambitions way beyond the normal quota quickie churned out by this studio.This is evidenced by the superior production values and the long,not to say overlong running time.Mind you a good portion of this film is taken up with songs. The story has a number of threads,one to do with a smuggler played by Dennis Joey and then there is the love interest and also a bet of five thousand pounds wagered on a horse race and a nasty landowner. Stanley Holloway features as what might be called a singing priest.However the film is really rather dull and maybe the over ambition finally led to the downfall of the studio.
