Hulbert Is Tiresome
2 March 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is quite interesting that many of the comedians who were popular on screen in the thirties saw their film career disappear from view by the end of the war.Examples of this being George Formby and Jack Buchanan.Another whose screen career did not survive the war was Jack Hulbert whose last starring role was in Under your Hat in 1940.It has to be said that given the sort of performance he gave in this film it is a wonder he lasted so long.I suppose he must have been popular but on this evidence it is hard to say why.I really like British musicals and comedies of the thirties so it pains me to say how painfully unfunny Hulbert is.He sings about as well as Fred Astaire but his dancing is no great shakes.However he just continually mugs his way through the film so that after about half an hour you just want to say enough is enough.Funnily enough the role of his sidekick,which is here played by a long forgotten actor would have suited his brother Claude whom i think was a far superior comic actor.Anyone other than a fan of British films of the 30s will find this a bore and will probably not last it out till the final reel.
