ranks with the best of the old J Arthur Rank films-hilarious
14 August 1999 | by (So.Windsor,Connescticut,USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when I was 8 years old, and it still brings tears of laughter to my eyes. It ranks up there with such films as The Man in the White Suit, The Lavender Hill Mob and Arsenic and Old Lace. It is a little-remembered classic!
