| A Marvelous Comedy that is largely forgotten...
This film is one of many that stick out from my childhood, unlike many children I always found my laughs in old films from the 50's, and 60s rather than the many poor cartoons available to kids in the 80's. This was one that my parents had recorded, that I watched over and over laughing as hard at the next viewing as I had from the previous. Upon reading the book many years later I discovered it hardly follows the story closely, but that doesn't matter because its a great film nonetheless. The cast are delightful in their comic turns, which even use slapstick to rather amusing consequences (my favourite scene involving a tin of pineapple slices). The story following 3 gents in the 1920's as they attempt to have a relaxing holiday on the river Thames, despite the distractions of women and the English weather - it's delightful to see how society didn't allow women of standing to simply meet men without a formal introduction first. There's no real point to the film but its nice to see great traditional comedy without the swearing and sex that is poured into films these days... A timeless film that I shall always treasure.
