George Carney is a local contractor with a brickyard. Gus MacNaughton is a local contractor with a cement plant. They compete for contracts and wrangle and their children are in love. When Peter Gawthorne talks about draining the marshland abutting their town, they see the prospect of easy riches.
All three men were well known supporting actors in the 1930s and 1940s. Carney is probably best remembered as Wendy Hiller's father in I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING; MacNaughton appeared in small roles in films for Hitchcock and the Kordas; and Gawthorne was a familiar face in more than a hundred movies. This quota quickie -- from specialist Maclean Rogers -- is a good-natured, minor effort that offers those familiar faces without straining much for the British cinema attendee, with four sets and simple camera set-ups. It's familiar and pleasant and over in seventy minutes.
