9 April 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I think that this film was made in 1938.In any event it gives an insight into the financial chicanery of the era which led to a general recession in 1938,causing the financial collapse of many film companies including Gaumont British and Twickenham studios.Henry Kendall is in a bad way financially.So he is wanted as a stooge for a shady transaction.He has second thoughts ,invents a partner,Mr Davis,manages to get his hands on some junk bonds and creates the illusion of wealth.Meanwhile Alastair Sim is coming in and out of the film as a financier whose had a mental breakdown.Kendall picks a W.Davis out of the phone book and she becomes involved in this strange film.Much of what lacks coherence and makes hardly any sense.It ends happily,
