15 minutes worth of gags stretched to 90 minutes.
23 January 2004 | by robert-elliott7See all my reviews

From the mid - thirties Frank Randle was one of the top Music Hall comedians, Mainly around the Music Halls in the north of England. Like his fellow Northern Comedians (Will Hay, George Formby and Gracie Fields) Film producers thought the next step would be the movies. Where in the case of his fellow artists it was a successful move it was not such a successful one in the case of Randle. His films did decent enough business in the North of England but did not travel so well elsewhere. This title his second film is one of his better efforts, Which really isn't saying much. It is based around the shenanigan's of a group of new recruits round an army training camp. His usual partners in crime are Harry Korris, Robbie Vincent (Enoch)and winkie turner. The production values in these movies were pretty poor even by war time standards. I am told Frank Randle was a very popular Music Hall Comedian in his time and usually brought the house down. His style did not quite travel to the silver screen. His movies do serve as a valuable reference to a very popular comedian.
