Trivia

This was made at a time when the studios used to work through the night and the leading actors were both in plays in London. So after their evening performance they would come out to Twickenham to shoot their parts. And the film was about someone who's meant to be idle! See more »

somewhat disappointing curio
17 July 2001 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I did never see anything by Powell (nor by longtime collaborator Emeric Pressburger) but I figure I couldn't have a worse start than this one. Technically interesting, but the acting is unbelievably terrible and the supposed jokes diffuse and float away before they have the chance to reach your speakers :-( and that's not due to the lack of music (apart from the begintitles and the endscene). Let's just say Powell needed MORE than 5 years to learn how to handle actors AND sound. Probably interesting for Powell-completists and/or if you can be satisfied with nice cinematography (by Arthur Crabtree) alone. If you want the tape (VHS-PAL) I'll send it over gladly ;-)
