I felt that I should correct some of the errors made in a previous review.This film was released in December 1940.The film was therefore made after the fall of France and therefore unlikely to be affected by attitudes of the Phoney War.Ealing portrayed the Nazis as buffoons well into the war.An example being The Goose Steps Out starring Will Hay.Also the end title displaying the British flag dates back to the thirties.This film is primarily a vehicle for the comedian Tommy Trinder.It is very apparent from this film that he is no actor but primarily a music hall comedian.Claude Hulbert is by far the most accomplished actor in this film.Michael Wilding is at the early stages of his career and it shows.I wondered if this film was maybe inspired by the sinking of the Graff Spew off Montivideo.Anyway it is fairly uninspired.In fact Ealings most famous war film was Went The Day Well which is still screened today unlike this film which is very much forgotten.
