An Attempt To Copy Ealing
15 June 2014 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

So this is an attempt by Associated British Picture Corporation,based at Elstree to try and copy the type of film then being made so successfully at Ealing Studios.However it doesn't quite come off.Whilst it is mildly entertaining the basic problem is that it relies far too heavily on national stereotypes.In this instance it is the Welsh passion for choirs.There is a lot of choral music featured in the film and if you are not partial to it then you will do as I did and fast forward through those sections.There are lots of familiar faces popping up in small parts.I even managed to miss Kenneth Williams who is referred to in the closing credits.
