Just a nice little romantic comedy for a rainy afternoon
I'm a fan of Googie Withers so I was a little predisposed to this. It's a bit silly - her husband is away in service and sends a friend of his along to help out before his returns, she gets a little crush on the friend and has a dream about him which suddenly gets muddled with reality - but not annoying, and played out very well. Griffith Jones is superb as the accommodating Jackson and Guy Middleton amusing as the unknowing husband. There's also a token flower show with 'Auntie Agnes' who wins every year, ala Mrs. Miniver. And even if the best part is a dream, it surely is romantic! The first scene is hilarious as well, even if it has almost nothing to do with the rest of the movie until the very end. Seems a little disjointed, but a little risque British humour never hurt any film.
