Pretty women galore
23 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this World War 2 musical comedy. Arthur Askey is at his most engaging as the singing head of a declining escort service in London. Evelyn Dall is a beautiful and business-savvy American who immediately takes charges by seeking beautiful women to work for the agency. These ladies are sexy, funny and can sing and dance as well. The highlight of the film is when Arthur does a wonderful take on Harpo Marx while Jack Train (who also does W.C Fields and Rochester) is a pitch perfect Chico and Evelyn does a turn a blond Groucho. It is a fun movie to watch on a lovely spring night. These old British comedies of the Thirties and Forties have a great deal of spirit and heart to them.
