The second reviewer almost guessed the reason this film was made.The British government slapped an 85%tax on American films,as the country was broke.The Americans retaliated by banning export of new films to the UK.The government asked Rank to plug the shortfall.Rank charged Sydney Box to make around 50 films.This was one of them.
There are 3 credited writers but it feels as if many more fingers were in the pie.It changes course as often as a destroyer on a zig zag course.
As a result this film is supremely unfunny.Contributing to the £12million overdrat ammassed by Rank by 1950.
