Silly but fun
23 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was i believe on a BFI list of missing films.It now comes as a DVD release shorn of 20 minutes including all of the credits.This is a reworking of that old chestnut "The Twelve Chairs" starring the musi hall team Gert and Daisy.Given that there are no credits part of the fun is wondering who ia going to turn up next.In small parts we see Esma Cannon and Irene Handel.Much of the humour is predictable.Like many films of this era the climax takes place in a theatre where everything that can go wrong does.The image and sound are good.Whist no forgotten masterpiece this is a fairly entertaining slice of wartime comedy.
