Storyline

Set in the world of brewing, a classic tale (an Ealing speciality) of the small, friendly, family run company being threatened with closure by the nasty, modern, large organisation. Bringing in familiar farce elements such as mistaken identity, slapstick and even pie fights, the tale is resolved through the love felt by the children of the opposing brewery owners.

Quotes

Naseby: You've rationalised the taste out of it. I vote we forget about the quantity for a bit and concentrate on quality. What's the use of machinery that can produce 10,000 bottles a minute when you can't offer one to your friends?

Marriott and Moffatt star in this frothy rom com
11 September 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Michael Balcon had been partly responsible for the teaming of Marriott and Moffatt with Will Hay when he was head of production at Gaumont British.He now borrowed them along with Nova Pilbeam from Gainsborough who they were contracted to after the collapse of Gaumont British.Despite the fact that the Irish comedian Jimmy O Dea has the main comedy role the duo easily outshine him.You only have to compare their rendering of "Old Obadiah" with O Deas painfully unfunny rendition of Napoleons retreat from Moscow.This was to be the pairs penultimate film together ,there being one more film with Will Hay to come the same year.This is a funny film when they are on screen,less so when O Dea is the focus.Alexander Knox features in a small role as a bookkeeper just a few years before his big break in Wilson.In one strange scene,Edmund Gwenn,head of the rival brewery is shown reading Mein Kampf.What might have gotten a pained laugh then is a rather bizarre interlude.Rarely seen but certainly worth a look.
