More Like A Cold Front
9 March 2013 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film has never been shown on TV in the UK and it has to be said that there is obviously a good reason for this in that it really is very poor.The story is even sillier than most.Albert Burden plays a greengrocer who is mistaken for a gunrunner by revolutionaries in a South American republic.So when they ask him for onions this is a code word for ammunition.For some reason he is teemed up with the large and ebullient Vera Pearce who is an opera singer.Les Allen,the well known dance band vocalist is also featured and sings a few pleasant songs.The climax is a mock opera.The Crazy Gang could have made this seem funny but this film singularly fails to do so.
