Inventive and good fun
16 July 2011 | by Charlot47See all my reviews

If you like witty dialogue, fine comic acting, 1940s songs and dances, and lots of beautiful girls, this is a film for you.

Arthur Askey can be a bit wearing on his own but here he has to share the limelight with other talented performers and is possibly outshone by the two leading ladies, the sophisticated American Evelyn Dall and the naïve English Anne Shelton. Anybody who has had to wait at Waterloo Station will enjoy Shelton's role as the announcer.

Full of brief spoofs and some prolonged parodies. We get Askey and Dall doing a routine as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and, with Ronald Shiner in addition, as the three Marx Brothers. Crazier still, to get into a smart hotel the Askey character pretends to be the real-life Arthur Askey, complete with catchphrases and mannerisms.
