Whimsical romantic comedy set in Ireland
16 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An amusing romantic comedy. Enid Stamp-Taylor is delightful as Tiny Fox-Collier, an impoverished widow who takes her son Tony (Michael Wilding, charming as ever) to stay in Ireland with an old flame of hers, Sir Richard Furze, a very wealthy widower. Tiny hopes that Tony will marry Sir Richard's elder daughter, Joan, who stands to inherit her father's estate, but Tony inconveniently falls for Baby, Joan's younger sister. Meanwhile Joan is enamoured of her father's groom, Michael, who loves her, but feels he is too lowly to aspire to her hand. Tiny sets out to sort out all the lovers' problems, while also hoping to kindle her old flame, Sir Richard. There is an amusing performance by Margaret Rutherford as an eccentric elderly relative who can't resist a flutter on the horses, and several cheerful Irish servants to add a bit of local colour. A very enjoyable and warmhearted comedy.
