Charters and Caldicott have been promoted by the film producer to head this comedy.Naunton Wayne and Basil Radford were popular playing these two bumbling characters in several films but I still think their performance in "The Lady Vanishes" 1938 was best and especially in the latter film I liked Basil Radford describing a particularly feliticous piece of play by Wally Hammond which he illustrates with sugar cubes representing the players on the field.I too was annoyed when Dame May Witty asked for the sugar cubes to be handed back to her table in the restaurant car.My summary title may seem a trifle arrogant but one has to remember we had just been through another world war and the nation needed to have something to laugh at in the cinema in the days before widespread TV ownership.Yes the comedy was primitive and producers still relied on old fashioned slapstick humour in the main to entertain the masses.Adequate 6/10
