Early curiosity for fan's of "On The Braden Beat"
30 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was an unknown film to me before it turned up in the small hours on TV. For older viewers, Bernard Braden is remembered as a witty presenter, big in the 1960s, a contemporary of David Frost and a forerunner of (ugh) Esther Rantzen. Here, in 1953, he is paired with wife Barbara Kelly in a farce about a struggling artist (complete with goatee) as his wife living on a houseboat. To raise money she hocks him to a pawnbroker! His new family kind of like him, particularly daughter Jean Carson (before her move to America) who does what she can to seduce him. Soon the situation becomes a national sensation, as Kelly is reluctant to retrieve her now confused hubby. Farcial situations abound. The couple of lots of sharp, punning dialogue, presumably supplied by "additional" scripters, Frank Muir and Denis Noren. The real revelation here is Barbara Kelly who is vibrant and sexy (she has a hot scene posing for Braden). A pity she never had a significant film career. She did stick to Bernard though.
