Amusing story, but dated acting.
24 November 2001 | by Neil-117See all my reviews

Revolving door farce with enough mixups, slipups misunderstandings, crafty schemes and chance encounters to provide a rich vein of comedy. But how acting styles have changed over time! The cast plays this one as if trying to communicate with a distant back row of seats in a large hall. To a modern screen audience this type of acting comes across as exaggerated melodrama (right down to the villainous moustache twirling!). All the same, if you can ignore the dated acting method there's some good fun here in the style of a PG Wodehouse novel.
