Great Wartime Tribute
6 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This remarkable film was largely the brainchild of Sir Cedric Hardwicke, who had the idea that British ex-patriates in Hollywood donate their services to make a stirring film with a strong nationalistic theme. He rounded up a lot of potential contributors including actors and directors and writers, but by the time he found a home for this at RKO, some of them like Cary Grant and Ronald Colman and Alfred Hitchcock were no longer available. Some Americans and Canadians pitched in their services and the result is the very entertaining tale of two distant cousins and and a house that survives into the blitz told in flashbacks as London is bombed. Hardwicke and Buster Keaton steal the show as two bumbling plumbers, but there are excellent contributions by Sir C. Aubrey Smith, Dame May Witty, Ida Lupino, Charles Laughton, Roland Young, Dame Gladys Cooper and others. Some material was deleted, perhaps because of the length and leisurely pace of the story-telling. For those who love Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs, this will appeal. It was a miracle it got made. Most of the contributors gave their time for the war effort. Worth a look.
