A Hoot
2 May 2018 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

All those besotted with the unique Elsa Lanchester (and you know who you are!) will have a great time with this follow-up to her short comedy 'Bluebottles', on which considerably more money and ingenuity has obviously been spent and which she sashays through in a variety of knockout outfits, including a bathing suit. Director Ivor Montagu's time spent studying Soviet and Continental cinema at the Film Society has plainly been well spent, while the camera is in the able hands of a 25 year-old Freddie Young.

Elsa's real-life husband Charles Laughton has a considerably larger role this time round as a creepy neighbour with a mole on his lip transformed in her mind's eye into a sybaritic Rajah in hoop earrings determined to stop at nothing to add her to his harem.

Great fun.
