A Likable Comedy
20 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nigel Patrick and David Tomlinson play men on holiday at a chalet in the Alps, who are beguiled by Mary, who works there. Mary is played by the very attractive Jill Day, and you get to see the missteps, pratfalls and other mistakes they make for her affections. Also present is Kathleen Harrison as Nanny Cartwright, who, though on holiday like the two men, is called upon to nurse them back to health when they contract chicken pox. The humor is light, some mild slapstick, but its fun to watch and flows fairly well. Nothing terribly original, but a fun British comedy from the 50's which holds up over 50 years later. The best character ironically is not Mary but Nanny Cartwright, since she thwarts every attempt for the two men to get out of the quarantine they are in after they broke out into chicken pox. Filmed in color, its a nice way to pass the time.
