Interesting early talkie
1 November 2015 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

British International Pictures who produced this film were responsible for the production of Britain's first full length sound film Blackmail.They turned ailments into part talkies by making the second half into talking pictures.In this instance they effectively remade the film as a talking picture using a few sequences from the silent film.Presumably it must have been worth their while as this film would serve as the bottom half of a double bill for quota purposes.Ray Mill and was quite caustic about this film in his autobiography,but it is an entertaining and interesting curio.Also interesting to see Moore Marriott a few years before he found fame with Will Hay.
