Great comedy
23 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this film as a youth maybe fourteen or fifteen years of age. The film to me was enjoyable because of James Mason's shady, easy going character. Little did I realise then what made the film so enjoyable. At the time I knew it was over 'class distinction' but many years later after watching it again did I realise the performance of both Mason and Mill's. Between them they managed to make a mockery of ill feeling between the classes (Mill's middle class against Mason's working class). The comedy of this picture is underestimated. The ending of the film is most memorable when both characters come to an understanding as Mason waves to Mill's as he sails away from Tahiti.
