| Not one of his best
George Formby signed for Columbia British for more money and more say in production but somehow it did not work out.This film is overlong at 88 minutes and is a rehash of jokes used to better effect in better films.The miming to opera routine had already been flogged to death.the Crazy Gang used it to much better effect in "Alfs Button Afloat".Much of the gags in the opera seem to have come from the classic "A Night At The Opera".Alas Formby,even with curly hair is no Harpo Marx.His songs are tuneful but totally unmemorable.He doesn't get to kiss his love interest at the fade out,clearly Beryl was on the set that day!.This all segued into the fade out of his film career 5 years later.
