Overlooked for a reason
25 March 2015 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am inserting reviews for all films I've seen that currently lack one, so this is the note I made about this film...'The first F.Randle film, which sets the tone of things to come, he plays a gormless army recruit in a camp setting, here the sub-plot involves a young cadet and a stolen lighter, it's OK.'Randle was a big star of the North of England music hall circuit, and like his more famous contemporary George Formby born in Wigan, apparently his stage act was fairly outrageous for the time, and this had to be toned down greatly in his films, so what remains is only of curio value. It's interesting to see that the English were making films featuring a camp of useless army recruits during some of the darkest days of WW2.
