| Satire on stardom misses the mark
This was one of 6 films produced by Ealing in 1954.Of these only The Maggie sticks in the memory.Little surprise then that Rank closed the studio the following year and sold it to the BBC.Whilst this film is amiable enough it never does more than raise a smile now and again.In any event with the studio system fast crumbling stars with contracts that tied them to a studio were fast becoming a dying breed.So I do wonder whether David Nivens character would be quite so happy to be rid of his studio.Interesting to see Humphrey Bogart in the final shot,probably done as a favour to Niven.He epitomized the new order making films through his independent company,Santana.
