| Oh Mr Hay
Will Hay films seem to get less funnier as the years roll by.

Maybe the memory cheats and you just realise he was probably never that funny in the first place.

In Where There's a Will he has a short routine with the rotund Graham Moffatt who plays the office boy who reads western comics.

Hay plays Benjamin Stubbins an incompetent solicitor with no clients, plenty of debt and fond of a drink. His daughter lives in a stately home with wealthy in laws who pretend to her that her father is doing well.

Stubbins is taken in with a wealthy American who gives Stubbins an advance to trace his family roots. The American and his gang plan to rob a bank and Stubbins office is conveniently located and they just want him out of the way.

Once Stubbins discovers what is happening it is too late and his fingerprints are all over the bank safe.

This really is atrocious stuff, painfully unfunny. Some knockabout stuff at the end redeems it somewhat.

The only people who are going to like this movie are those who think. If it's old, in black and white. It must be a classic!
