Pugilism on church property?!
29 September 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wally Burton (William Hartnell) is a scheming boxing promoter. Oddly, he's rented out space in the local parish's recreation hall-- and the local vicar has no idea he and his disreputable customers are hanging out on church property. To get in good with the vicar, Wally decides to promote the man's nephew in his boxing career. However, even though they've enlisted the priest, there still is the archdeacon to impress (fool is more likely)...and to do so, Wally poses as the local vicar! Considering he's a rather sleazy character, that IS quite a stretch!

This film is mildly funny...mildly. The best part about it is seeing William Hartnell in the lead--he's pretty good. Most of the rest of the actors, however, have less to work with and the characters are rather drab. More a time-passer than a must-see film.
