early will hay, 16 December 2004
Author: malcolmgsw from london

This is one of Will Hay's earlier efforts.Whilst this time he plays the part of the local vicar nevertheless for all purposes this is a variation of his usual roll as the incompetent schoolteacher.I would not regard this as one of his better films.However this is partly to do with the writing and also the fact that neither Moore Marriott nor Graham Moffatt are in this film.Hay disliked being part of a team.Not an uncommon trait for popular comics.Yet you only have to compare this with say Oh Mr Porter to reals why that film is a national treasure,yet this film,probably undeservedly,remains largely forgotten.However that said it is definitely worth a viewing
