This is a little low budget comedy-mystery based on a popular BBC radio series. Oddly named Hy Hazell stars as the title character, a music hall performer who, with partner and boyfriend (and co-star) Michael Medwin, blunders willfully into the criminal escapades of a trio of crooks. The boyfriend, the club owner, and Scotland Yard have all had their fill of her constant attempt to solve crimes, but this time she truly does. The comedy is sub-standard, woefully predictable stuff, and nobody really makes an impression. Medwin is a familiar face from many English comedies. Andrew Keir, later a robust and effective character actor in many films (Hammer films especially) makes his film debut here and he's fine, although virtually unrecognizable behind a beard and about fifty pounds thinner.
