Will hay was like many great comedians,he hated being part of a team.Two other examples being WC Fields in his later years and Tony Hancock.Despite doing his best work at Gainsborough he decided to break with them and join Ealing.As a result none of the 5 films that he starred and co-directed at Ealing are up to the standard of the films that he made with Graham Moffat and Moore Marriott.In this film his straight man is of all people John Mills.Whilst there are some funny moments this film is not consistently funny.Also it has to be said that Hay is starting to look quite old,he only made 2 more features after this before a series of strokes brought an untimely end to his career.
