Captain to Steward "You're a fool, Sanders". Steward: "Thank you Sir!"
19 October 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Important to note that this a comic murder mystery, rather tongue in cheek. It is more entertaining, competently done with higher production values (cast of 50!) than some well-known-cast "quota quickies" and post quota (post 1960) minor British features. Quota films included the great Alexander Korda Leviathons - Korda had been attracted to Britain because of the financial and audience guarantees. An interesting piece challenging the "myth" of the quota quickie is at www.britishpictures.com/articles/quota.htm

I think a 1936 audience would have regarded this as a reasonable evening's entertainment, worth a full 1/9d A 5.5
