Trivia

Apart from the presence of Jeeves and Wooster and the fact that Bertie annoys Jeeves by playing a musical instrument badly and incessantly, the film bears no resemblance in plot or characters to P. G. Wodehouse's 1934 novel of the same name. See more »

Quotes

Tom Brock: What do you mean?
Bertie Wooster: Well I can't take you into my confidence - you'll just have to trust your old friend Wooster, that's all. You see, I've decided to take over Miss Lowman's interests permanently.
Jack Stone: Do you mind telling us what you're talking about?
Bertie Wooster: No, not at all old boy, it's a pleasure. I have persuaded Miss Lowman that a life of dishonesty never did pay in the final analysis. Of course I never could bear a thief at any price. However, she's an exception, we know that.
Tom Brock: Is he pulling our leg?

P. G. Wodehouse's Bertie & Jeeves get the Hollywood formula treatment.
16 November 2007 | by maksquibsSee all my reviews

He only gets third billing (behind Arthur Treacher & Virginia Field), but this was effectively David Niven's first starring role and he's charmingly silly as P. G. Wodehouse's dunderheaded Bertie Wooster, master (in name only) to Jeeves, that most unflappable of valets. As an adaptation, it's more like a watered-down THE 39 STEPS than a true Wodehousian outing. And that's too bad since the interplay between Treacher & Niven isn't too far off the mark. Alas, the 'B' movie mystery tropes & forced comedy grow wearisome even at a brief 57 minutes. Next year's follow-up (STEP LIVELY, JEEVES) was even more off the mark, with no Bertie in sight and Jeeves (of all people!) forced to play the goof.
