| Engaging Ealing Comedy
This film is currently available view at the BFI Mediatheque as part of their British Cinema of the 1930s season.Ignore the marks that people have given it on this site.It is a stylish witty comedy with fine performances from all of the cast but in particular Seymour Hicks and Martita Hunt.The story is hardly new.A young aristocrat is being forced into a loveless marriage with a wealthy brewers daughter.he flees to a music hall where the Human cannonball(Anna Lee)is fired out of a cannon literally into his lap.Initially they are at each others throats but of course hate turns to love.They decide to go off to Paris to break up his engagement with somewhat unexpected consequences.This really is a delightful film which deserves to have some decent reputation.Hopefully its current availability will allow this.
