Indifferent quota quickie
7 February 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Edward Rigby was an experienced character actor who had small roles in A pictures.In this quota quickie produced by George King for Paramount he actually gets to play the lead.He does this quite reasonably,unfortunately he doesn't have a particularly good script.There were quite a few contemporary films where a father comes back to sort out his children's problems.He plays a con man who 20 years previously had emigrated to Australia to get away from the police.Coming back to this country he finds that his wife has virtually airbrushed him from the past.She has inherited a fortune and lives in style.Rigby manages to get himself ensconced in her house.The children,who do not recognise him both have problems.Rigby sorts them out and wins back his wife.
