Redgrave in top comic form
16 June 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This underrated film was recently shown again on TV.Despite having seen this a number of times i still found it as fresh as on its first viewing.There are so many fresh faces in even bit parts.The film shows off Redgraves comedic talent to the full.The fact that everything is underplayed and the comedy is so wry makes it all the more funny.The situations are well thought out and the comedic aspects of the plot are fully exploited.Robert Morley is in good form as the pompous judge and Lionel Jeffries plays the sort of role that he could do blindfold.Another classic comedy from the 50s which i believe is every much as good as the revered Carry Ons.
