This is one of about three dozen British films picked up by CBS in 1949 for television presentation in New York City on WCBS (Channel 2). Its initial telecast took place Saturday 17 September 1949. Since this title had never been shown theatrically in the USA, this was also its USA premiere. See more »
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.
