He finds a group of six wealthy individuals who may want to become investors in the studio if his disgruntled backer pulls out.

Complications ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

A fitting tribute to the gang
21 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film is basically a transfer of the best bits from the Gantgs hit show at the London Palladium.This is probably as near a representation of the earthy music hall humour of the era as you are ever likely to get.One can only wonder how they managed to get past the censor the sketch towards the end when the main object seemed to say the name of one of the characters in the sketch,Farquahar,as often as they could.I had the good fortune to be present at a lecture given by Val Guest,one of the writers at the National Film Theatre some years ago.They had to have a spread sheet so they could work out the how frequently each of the Gang was being featured as the idea was to give them equal screen time and ensure that there was not to long between each line.He also mentioned that they were quite a handful as they were well renown for playing practical jokes.As a fan of the Gang i can say that this is a fitting tribute.
