Routine British 'class comedy' great editor!
3 April 2014 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am inserting reviews for all films I've seen that lack one, every film deserves a review!.... A rich author looking for 'real life' inspiration adopts a career thief, and an attractive typist who is looking for a job, in this routine tale of the British class system, it's amusing enough to pass the time, but only of note as one of the early films edited by the great D.Lean, all in all OK. I can't say that the editing by Lean is any better or worse than any other aspect of this film. Anyone interested in checking this film out can get it on the 4 film DVD set 'The Ealing Studios Rarities Collection Volume #6' I have to pad to make the review long enough, why? as I have no more to add in relation to the film, I will point out that it was made at Ealing studios, but is not an 'Ealing Films' production, the majority of the films in the Ealing Rarities Collections fall into this category.
