| Good Vehicle for Courtneidge and Hulbert
At a ski resort in Europe, Jack Hulbert falls down more than a Catskills tumeler on Chanukah. It's one of his movie pairings with his wife, Cicely Courtneidge. They're not the romantic couple here. They're competing reporters on a newspaper and they're trying to get a story on Tamara Desni, who is fleeing from her fiancé, Archduke Garry Marsh, who keeps trying to kidnap her back to the country where their marriage contract is enforceable.

Jack falls in love with her at first sight, and that's where the movie is at its best. The rest consists of a few songs, split between Jack and Miss Courtneidge; Miss Courtneidge putting in Jack's rejected dentures and trying unsuccessfully to pass herself off as someone else; one exuberant dance on a bar; and the usual gag sequences and mugging between the two stars, which must have been audience pleasers when this movie was new. Alas, the shtick hasn't aged well.

It's co-directed by Jack and Robert Stevenson. By the 1970s, Stevenson's movies had earned more money than any other director's.
