| Hay isn't making Hay
Firstly I would mention that this film was originally made for distribution by Gaumont British.However the company crashed in unexplained circumstances in 1938'Rank bought the assets under his company,General Film Distributors and a whole new chapter in British cinema was begun.Gaumont had a failed policy of importing American actors to break into the American market.This explains the appearance of Edgar Kennedy in this film..The problem is that Kennedy and Hay have completely different styles of comedy and they just don't work well together.Kennedy is very much the physical comedian whereas Hay tends to rely on words,puns and tongue twisters.So the script is tailored for both and it just doesn't work.Although Hay didn't like working as part of a team,nevertheless his best films are with Moore Marriott and Graham Moffat..
