Crazy Credits

The George Formby impersonators in Blackpool sing Formby's hit "Leaning on a Lamp Post" several times and also during the closing credits along with his "My Little Stick of Blackpool Rock." Although Penelope Keith mentions "the George Formbys," his soundtracks are not used and he gets no screen credit. See more »

A gem among the trash
29 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is easy for the frequent viewer of television to become pessimistic about the future of the medium. The proliferation of channels has led to fragmentation of the audience and a general shortage of money for quality programs. But then, along comes a gem like "Margery and Gladys". The story and the humanistic style remind me strongly of the comedy/spy production "Sleepers" (1990) and it comes as no surprise that one of the writers, Andrew McCulloch, contributed to both productions. The direction, camera-work and acting were first rate and the editing (i.e. cutting from scene to scene) was just right for maintaining attention. As a person over 60 with UK background, I was delighted by the snatches of George Formby songs towards the end. Formby was to the 1940s what the Beatles were to the 1960s.

Anyway, the TV industry is not doomed as long as movies like this can be produced. I'm delighted to see that it is liked in the USA despite its rather British flavor.
