His Lordship Presses On
22 February 2017 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

June Clyde is an American journalist in England to get a story on local farming conditions. Hugh Williams is an Earl, who, she dislikes sight unseen. To get his revenge, Williams pretends to be a small farmer who offers to put her up so she can write an informed story in this unsurprising comedy.

There are some good mild jokes and situations, mostly dealing with the problems that Williams' staff has in dealing with "Bill" rather than "His Lordship".

June Clyde was an American actress with a small but decent career in America. She spent three years in England as a lead in about fifteen quota quickies.

If you look at this in its details, it's clear that it was written by British writers; Miss Clyde's lines are not in the least bit American and the pacing is far more leisurely than the movie's American equivalents. Still, the jokes and gags are amusing in a low-key way and produce a decent time-waster.
