| Looking Like Yourself
This typical farce plot -- easygoing George gets his hair marcelled and looks exactly like a South American opera singer, also played by George -- does not sound like Mr. Formby's usual métier, but he shows himself capable of carrying out the minor exigencies of the role, while singing a few nice songs, a typical "The Barmaid at the Rose & Crown" and a less typical swing song.

Under the direction of farce director Marcel Varnel, George does a lot more shtick than in his usual vehicles, but it is well within his abilities.

His leading lady is Linden Travers, best remembered for her supporting role in THE LADY VANISHES. She performs nicely, but except for George and Felix Aylmer in a small supporting role, it's an unremarkable series of performances. This is not to be sneered at: it is a star vehicle for George, and his usual charm is on full display.
