What A Cast!
17 September 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This Britsih B film from the 50s has a fantastic cast.Firstly there is Kathleen Harrison.She always plays the same part,a soft hearted put upon and often self sacrificing woman.Then Edward Woodward in his film debut.There are 3 actors who would become famous in years to come on TV.Leslie Dwyer(Hi De Hi),Dandy Nichols(the silly moo in Till Death Us Do Part)and Geoorge Cole ,here in his "Flash Harry" guise but of course most famous for Arthur Daly.In the supporting cast there is Sam Kydd and Bill Shine.The film itself is one of those films where the plot surrounds a missing will.It is eventually found in the most unlikely place you could think of.So whilst the film is rather unoriginal much pleasure is gained by watching all these familiar faces at work.
