Not So Good or What A Load Of Rubbish
31 May 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a remake of the 1936 film which starred and was co written by Wally Patch.What ever possessed anyone to produce this remake is beyond me.It is supposed to be a comedy but fails to raise a single laugh.It has a reasonable cast including Leslie Dwyer,Bill Owen and Dandy Nichols who are unable to salvage anything from this woeful car crash of a film.It is probably only of interest to residents of the Twickenham area from the 1950s.Towards the end the dust cart careers through the streets of the area allowing those who are familiar with the area to see how it has changed in the ensuing 60 years.Little wonder the British film industry was struggling at this time if all they were capable of producing was films like this.
