This quota quickie from Twickenham is one of their last before Julius Hagen was caught up in the great financial crash of 1937 which brought down not just his company but Gaumont British.It is an interesting factor of this film that most of this film is made on location and very little in studios.Judy Gunnis being kept in her room because she doesn't want to marry the man of her father's choice.She escapes and meets a young naval lieutenant on leave Jack Hawkins.At the same time Gordon Harker the master of a Thames barge is romancing Margaret Rutherford.Ronald Shiner is his third hand.So basically it is a rather broad and not particularly funny film which ensures that Jack is going to marry Judy after a 2 day engagement.The main point of interest is in seeing 3 stars on the rise,Hawkins,Shiner and Rutherford.
