Varnel directs slickly but cant get many laughs
8 January 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was shown last night at the BFI Southbank as part of the "Projecting The Artchives" series.The curator who introduced it mentioned that it had been brought out from the far corners of the archive and that it deserved a viewing.He made the point that this film was the equivalent of the screwball comedy in the US,a season of which is currently running.Alas his preamble whetted our appetites for what was unfortunately a damp squib.the highlight as mentioned in the other review,a fall down a long staircase by Richard Hearne.Hearne ,later to be known as "Mr pastry" was the highlight of this mediocre farce.Unfortunately all this film did was highlight the sheer class of Hollywood films in comparison.After all "My Man Godfrey,"You Cant Take It With You","Theodora Goes Wild" are still regarded as classics of the genre.alas this film will go back into limbo unremembered by any other than last nights audience.Some good British comedies were made in the 1930s,alas this is not one of them.
