why is this not available?
3 September 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I cannot understand that this ,alone,of George Formbys films is unavailable and has not been shown on TV.It only gets a showing at the NFT now and again.The fact that it has not reached 5 votes yet speaks volume..This is one of the films that Formby made for Ealing Studios.It is also in my view one of his best because it has a reasonably entertaining story.It starts with George working in a record factory.A crooner sings "Leaning On A Lampost" Crosby style at a recording session.The recording is made on a wax disc which George manages to break.He secretly makes a replacement in his inimitable style.So the comedy arises from the fact that the studio bosses do not know that the change has been made. this film also has a satirical swipe at the jerrybuilding of houses in the 1930s suburban housebuilding boom in London.It is an entertaining film but one which few people have seen for many years.
