In the thirties there were a number of variations on Brewsters Millions.A Will making a bequest subject to impossible conditions.In this instance drinking,smoking and swearing.The beneficiary is Leslie Fuller who,difficult to believe,was a big name in British film comedy.Out to trap hi is that famous music hall star,Nellie Wallace.Now it has to be said that much of this farce is of a very predictable kind,until you come to the last couple of minutes of the film.A truly hilarious scene is precipitated by the introduction of a chimpanzee.She trilateral the dimwits her only scene.There is no way that Fuller can top this.
