"This is no laughing matter"
27 September 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Robertson Hare is a dentist.His son,Billy Milton,is getting married.A last comes to his surgery.She puts on a scene making out as if she had been assaulted.She tells him that his son should not marry.She calls the police.Hare goes to see his son and Drayton.They are late for the wedding and the bride and her mother come to see what is happening.However they go away dissatisfied.Hare hides in a desk.Hare then dresses up in women's clothes.Characters come and go in what is a totally disconnected plot.This is not helped by the fact that 2 sequences have lost their sound..The mute sections are covered by subtitles taken from the script.Featured in this film are a young James Batter and Kathleen Harrison.The DVD distributors are to be commended for making the effort.No film featuring Robertson Hare is unwatchable.However I just wish the film had been rather better than it is.A detective says "this is no laughing matter".Sadly he is right.
