An RAF squadron is brought down over occupied France. The flyers get to Paris in spite of the fact that the youngest, Baby, is injured. He must be hidden and his wounds cared for. The Gestapo has already issued orders for their arrest.
This was the last starring vehicle for Jack Hulbert and Cicely Courtneidge.After this with the exception of the odd solo role on the screen the rest of their careers was spent on the stage and in cabaret.It is hardly surprising when you view this film.The humour is forced and the musical numbers though entertaining are often photographed as if they were in a theatre.It also has to be said that a little of Cic and Jack goes a very long way.Jack always seemed to come across as an amiable buffer who won through despite his characters inadequacies.However Cic just overwhelms everyone else and every thing else on screen at the same time as her.She is totally overpowering,the problem is that she is just not funny,and neither is this film.
