Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon as Radio Stars
9 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

American silent and talkie stars Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon moved to England in the 1930s and continued making films. By 1940 or so they also invaded British radio with the popular "Hi Gang" variety series in which they starred as themselves. This film is an offshoot of the radio show with Lyon and Daniels playing themselves but as rival radio reporters in the US who are also married.

Very low budget but zippy with good songs and a ton of one liners as they bicker their way through the bizarre plot that has them "adopt" a boy evacuee from England. After a few mix-ups the "boy" turns out to be full-grown Graham Moffatt (from the hilarious Will Hay films of the era) and his crazed uncle, played by Moore Marriott (also from the Hay films). After these two go through a hilarious version of "Susannah's a Funny Old Man," radio listeners send in $50,000 to repair Moffatt's bombed-out castle. But that's just part of the crazy plot here.

Old pros Daniels and Lyon (both in films since the teens) are breezy and fun and both have excellent singing voices. Vic Oliver, as the nuisance sidekick, is mostly annoying. Marriott and Moffatt are hilarious as always. Supporting cast includes Felix Aylmer, Mavis Villiers, and Jacques Brown as Botticelli.
