Whats the silly point
12 April 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

With the right script Nauton Wayne and Basil Radford were as funny as any.Alas this is not one.Much of their comedy came from understatement and so the one truly funny scene in this film is with Diana Dors.Shame they didn't pick her as their secretary.Too much of the time the film is far too farcical and quite frankly the pair are lost.The idea of jewels hidden in a ball had whiskers on it when it was used here,as is the scene set backstage in a theatre when they mess up the performance of everyone.In fact the most entertaining part of that skit is the musical seal.It is a great shame that they were not given much better material to work with.
