Storyline

A country rector, Rev. Arthur Fear, finds his ward Jennifer is being blackmailed by a former lover, Captain Crowther, who holds incriminating letters. Fear attempts to steal them back, but when he breaks into Crowther's flat, he finds another man, Meggitt, another enemy of the Captain, already there. After cracking the safe, the two divide it's contents, the bonds for Meggitt, Jennifer's letters for Arthur. However, the bonds and letter get switched, and Meggitt thinks he's been purposefully double crossed, so he poses as a Bishop at the village church's jumble sale to try and retrieve the bonds.

Dashing country Vicar comes good
31 March 2003 | by CicerosaurusSee all my reviews

A country vicar (Bobby Howes) in rural England, has to protect his ward (Dorothy Boyd) from blackmail. In doing so he becomes involved in crime a little more sinister than he imagines. Dated comedy, viewable mainly for its curiosity value. However, it does retain a certain charm. The performances are stilted by todays standards, although I doubt whether it was ever intended to be taken too seriously.
