A fast-paced musical charmer
1 August 2000 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

More than a vehicle for the popular George Formby, this pleasant musical offers star turns by comedienne Florence Desmond and the inimitable Alistair Sim, plus an appealing tot called Binkie Stuart. Based on a Russian play, this plot has George trying to discover which of a half dozen chairs his late and eccentric aunt has hidden his inheritance in. Of course, the chairs have been sold at auction, requiring George to pursue them various locales, each allowing a Marx Brothers-type comic sequence.
