Saucy farce with Nyree Dawn Porter
20 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Struggling insurance salesman Tom tries to drum up some business with his skirt-chasing old army pal Drew, whom had once - accidentally, unknown to Tom - saved his life. Drew has the kind of rich uncle, most usually found in this kind of farce, who will only entrust him with the family business so long as he's respectably married. Faced with a visit by the uncle from across the Atlantic, Drew needs to find someone pronto to pose as his wife, but none of his regular floozies fit the bill. What to do? He seizes on Tom's desperation and promises him a big insurance deal if his attractive young wife Jenny will masquerade as Drew's until the uncle is out of the way again. Of course, all kinds of compromising situations and other complications ensue. Above all, how can Tom ensure that Drew will keep his lecherous hands off Jenny? This farce has an abundance of stock characters; apart from the uncle there's Tom's ludicrously puritanical and pompous boss, a nosey old gossip of a neighbour and a trio of comical car thieves straight out of a children's matinée of the time. On the other hand a young Anton Rodgers is effective as Tom and Nyree Dawn Porter, some years before her fame in The Forsyte Saga, is charming and lovely as Jenny. Australian Kenneth J. Warren, a popular character actor on British TV in the sixties, and who sadly died young, is amusing as the rascally Drew. Despite the obvious faults, I thought this little movie was fun.
