Really quite amusing
12 September 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

You didn't see Michael Dennison and Dulcie Grey in many comedies.This film shows that they could do it.Dennison is a jeweller who is not very good in business.So girlfriend Dulcie has to sort out the messes he gets himself into.She is walking out of the office and walks straight into a smash and grab robbery.The gang abduct her and take her to their hideout.The gang is bosses by Sydney Tafler and includes Bill Owen and Charles Farrell.They too are a pretty incompetent lot.Whilst they keep her she starts to get them properly organised.She manages to get a note of her whereabouts to Dennison who finds the hideout and leads to a knockout finale.I thought that it was quite amusing at times.
