Mr & Mrs Dixon only with different spouses.
20 July 2008 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This is a film from the redoubtable Mancunian Studios of John Blakely.Starring in this but married to different spouses are Mr & Mrs Dixon otherwise Jack Warner and Gladys Henson.This is a stage play and one is made only too aware of the films antecedents.The camera is most times plonked down in what would be the centre of the stalls.To save lots of set ups and editing what happens is that when any character has a line they make their way to the centre of the stage and then retreat to the back of the stage when their scene has been played out.This film is mainly about class distinction which was obviously rearing its head again under the Churchill Tory administration.However all the petty squabbles are set aside when in the middle of the film Jack Warner goes down to the pub and who should come in but Jimmiy James and his stooge.What follows is like a 5 minute music hall act.This quite frankly is the only thing worth watching in the whole film.
