What A Hopeless Mess
26 November 2011 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Will Fyffe was a well established music hall performer who like many in his profession made some films but with very little success.His acting is far too broad for the cinema and he comes over as a caricature Scotsman.He is not helped by a truly awful script,poor direction and model shots which appear to have been filmed in someones bathtub.I know that many of the films at the time had a propaganda element but this was really taking matters to an extreme.the plot was incoherent,badly developed and improbably resolved.The acting was uneven.Leslie Banks was fairly laid back.However despite a reasonable cast nothing could save this mish mash from disaster.Clearly at this point in the war the British film industry was in rather a trough from which it would soon recover.
