Trivia

A song originally scheduled for the film, "I Wonder Who's Under Her Balcony Now?', was cut by director Anthony Kimmins', who was worried it might cause offense. One verse went, "Will he kiss her under the nose or underneath the archway where her sweet william grows? If he's fresh and gets too free I hope a bulldog bites him in the place it bit me . . . I hope he catches the lot when she empties out her old geranium pot". See more »

User Reviews

Great Formby flick
4 August 1999 | by Russell DoddSee all my reviews

One of Formby's very best has George working in the printing department for a major London newspaper. Counterfeit notes are spreading around and George and his partner Bill take it upon themselves to solve the crime. The songs aren't as good as they are in usual Formby films but the film is very well written and is very funny. Anyone who likes Ealing comedies will love this.

It's champion!
