Max Miller was in my opinion the greatest stand up comedian of his generation.Thes best way to get a feel of what he was really like on stage is to listen to recordings of his performances at the Holborn Empire.He was not really blue,certainly not by today's standards but for his generation he was what you might call "Near The Nuckle"My mother has told me that my grandmother,who i always regraded as rather prim and proper,always used to roar with laughter when she went to see him.So due to censorship restrictions of the period we are never going to get the Full Max on film.So we just have to treasure the historical record on film and be thankful that some of his films have survived.I think that the only person that i have ever heard talk so fast on screen is James Cagney.What i would say though is that this film is primarily for aficionados of his style of comedy or British films of the 30s,Otherwise it might leave you a bit disinterested
