| Pell & Little's dance is brill
Watching Formby films in chronological sequence as part of a 20 film collection. This was his 2nd film, and for the most part looks as inept as the 1st was.

Contains all the same deficiencies as Boots! Boots!: negligible plot, Am-Dram theatricals, cheap production values, inane script, laboured set ups etc.

After a while i was fast forwarding the contrived story elements just to get to the songs.

But then - near the end - comes along the Stan Pell and Stan Little dance skit in the school. Brilliant! Funny! At last something to be genuinely merry about.

If i ever watch this film again I'll go straight to Pell & Little's merry mad dance. And watch some of the songs again too (like "With My Little Ukulele In My Hand")

As for the rest of the film - forget it.
