One of the more successful at the UK Box Office of the 15 film series
27 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Firstly, the sound and print transfer to DVD is excellent.Plot has daughter Kitty becoming engaged (poor fella!)to Joe (Jerry Verno)who gets posted by the hotel company he works for to Paris.Old Mother Riley (Arthur Lucan)wins £250 compensation and along with Kitty (Kitty Mcshane)goes to Paris to find out what Joe is up too. The old standby script of this type of 30s comedy,spies and espionage slots in and in the end, there is nothing exceptional in the plotting.Mild fun. GOOF Both the walls used in the prison scene and the nightclub are the same,look at the drawings.UK fans of much missed TV entertainer Kenny Everett can see who he got the quick crossed legs idea from. More background for Arthur Lucan in my review of Old Mother Riley Headmistress on this website.
