Frank Morgan at his best
19 July 2002 | by (Ky.) – See all my reviews

This little comedy was made at the MGM English studio. It featured a British cast, with the exception of the American character actor, Frank Morgan. Remember him? He played the wizard, in the "Wizard Of Oz." What makes this film fun to watch is Morgan's comic skill, and energy. Also, a plus, is the quality of his fellow British actors. This quality, is what raises a rather sub-par script, into a very watchable film.
