cracking caper from mr wisdom!
Despite this not being seen since it's general release, i was lucky enough to see this classic comedy. This really stretches Normans talents to the full, This really deserves a DVD release of some sort cause it's probably lost or forgotten, someone needs to save this film!!!!!! There are however some fine performances from certain other actors, but norman steals the limelight, accidentally getting in trouble for robbing a safe, it's probably his best work in a movie, other wisdom films at the time were "the bulldog breed" and "on the beat" both classics by far, but this one glimmers alone on a shelve in an achieve somewhere waiting to be cleaned up for our general viewing.
