Bottom Of The Poll
11 July 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film was made in an era of political instability.Parties splitting into factions and 3 elections between 1929-1935.This film presumably utilised the interest of the people in politics at that time.This is a very broad comedy presumably made with Northern audiences in mind.Though this site shows John Mills as the leading actor,the star is in fact Leslie Fuller.Much of his humour clearly derives from the music hall.The film features Moore Marriott just prior to his first role in a Will Hay film.It has to be said that John Mills seems to be a fish out of water.Everyone talking with "oop north" accents but Mills talks with a refined accent.Also seen at a political meeting is Wylie Watson who would feature as Mr Memory in The 39 steps the following year.The plot seems to be more about smuggling than politics and the humour such as it is has dated badly.Let's say that in political terms it looses its deposit.
