Quotes

Lord Harry Drewsden: Can you really make Tommy look like my uncle?
Billy Bowler: Can I? Can I? Ha-ha! When I've made Tommy up, he'll look more like your uncle than your uncle was. Now then, if I remember correctly, your uncle used to walk with his feet rather turned out and a bit flat-footed, didn't he?
Lord Harry Drewsden: Yes, that's right.
Billy Bowler: I thought so.

Billy Bowler: . Now you do that.
Tommy Teacher: Me? Right.

Uplifting British musical
16 May 2020 | by yrussellSee all my reviews

It's a shame that Stanley Lupino and Laddie Cliff are so forgotten today (maybe it's because they both died young). Watching this film, you could see why they were once so popular. This movie is an adaptation of a highly successful stage play in London (at the start of the final song, images of a theatre and audience are superimposed over Lupino's face). The plot moves along swiftly, filled with absurd situations, romantic shenanigans, witty one-liners, and lively songs. It's popular entertainment from a bygone age, but it's still so accessible and fun. I was still humming the songs long after watching the film.
