I'm inserting reviews for all films I'v seen that lack one, this rarity has recently been shown on talking pictures, so more people will have a chance to see it, possibly someone will write a more favorable review? well here is mine... Staring, directed and co-written by Lupino Lane, he plays a henpecked stepfather who when holidaying in Blackpool is mistaken for an enemy spy, in a plot involving the sabotage of a radio controlled glider contest! The plot is as irrelevant as it is unlikely, this film is simply an excuse to showcase it's star, it all comes down to is he funny? Well on this evidence Mr Lane joins the long list of successful stage comedians whose talents did not translate to the silver screen, not awful, but of curio value only.
