Trivia

This film had its first public screening in the UK on 15 October 2004, a mere 65 years after it was made. The first screening on 28 June 1939 was to an invited audience for the preview and launch. But a film about ex-servicemen having difficulty finding work wasn't popular in 1939 just as WWII was about to start and new recruits were needed for the armed forces - so it was never screened publicly.
