Its Those Cricket Mad Buffs Again
25 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

How delightful to see those two bachelor cricket mad fans again, Charters & Caldicott (Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne).Of course they masquerade in this film under the character names posted by the other user above.For another chance to see them view "Night Train to Munich" (1940), "The Lady Vanishes" (1938) and "The Small Back Room" (1947).I simply relish their dry English humour.In "A Girl in a Million" They are assisting Hugh Williams (Tony) in a remote government scientific research establishment where along with "Peabody" (Wylie Watson) the butler and general factotum, they are the only men in a men only establishment.This suits Tony as he has successfully obtained a divorce from a sympathetic judge from his ultra nagging wife.There is a very humorous line when the three scientists who have just met for the first time are relaxing in silence, smoking and reading in the evening after work.Tony asks C&C one innocuous question and receives a monosyllabic reply.He then retires to bed. Charters: "What do you think of him?" Calicott:"A bit talkative" Charters:"Don't worry we'll soon get him out of that!"

Into this happy trio of bachelors comes an American army officer who explains that a previous scientist, who tragically died at the base, has left a niece who needs accommodation since she has no relatives, friends etc in the UK and a hotel would be unsuitable.She needs a temporary home and he influences the trio to show pity and sympathy.He induces the reluctant trio to take her on condition it is temporary.The trio reluctantly agree to this arrangement and are then told that Kay, (Joan Greenwood), is a mute since her ship was torpedoed on the way over from the U.S.A. and the incident affected her power of speech.Another humorous scene is where Tony raises his voice to converse with Kay, in the common human failing of misunderstanding physical handicaps.Kay communicates by little written notes and hands to Tony one which reads "Don't shout, I'm not deaf!".

Kay's a dab hand at putting/golf and uses her feminine skills to beguile the bachelors who all go out with her to various social engagements.Her sights are really set on Tony but I will not divulge the outcome.I noticed Peabody (Mr.Memory from "The 39 Steps" (1939) played "Autumn" on his cello to Kay when she came into his room rather lonely in need of some company.This piece of music has been attributed by some witnesses to Wallace Hartley and his ensemble as they played it on the sinking decks of the "Titanic".

This is a fun film and I enjoyed it rating it 7/10.
