Short and sweet
26 January 2014 | by (Derby, UK) – See all my reviews

A better class quota quickie – this was another Real Art production from Julius Hagen at Twickenham, cheaply made of course but entertaining notwithstanding. The censors certificate at the start states the title is Department Stores so maybe it was a large operation, and the credits hail An All Star Cast - although there are many British minor film stalwarts in here it's rather a hopeful credit. But as the lead man Sebastian Shaw later went on to appear in Return Of The Jedi maybe the farce stayed with him!

As separate favours two people start on the same day at a dysfunctional department store: one the well-bred heir to the store the other a light-fingered crook. Garry Marsh plays the thieving tripe-talking manager who gets the two the wrong way round thereby greasing up to the crook and giving the owners' son a hard time. The film concerns the farcical comedy of errors with many deceptions and a robbery. The moral to me is that as the baddies couldn't recognise obvious good breeding from one of their own low kind they deserved all their luck – Class should tell after all, shouldn't it? From my experience all the Little Hitler's I've ever known always knew who to toady to and who to spurn from blind instinct. There's time for a sprinkling of romance, even smart-ass cynicism and it's fascinating to watch pan out, and well worth the 67 minute running time of a regrettably grotty print.
