    No great shakes as a film as it clearly originated on the stage and seems to be the film version of that. However there are some wonderful treats in it particularly Marion
    Shilling who is simply wonderful. J.C. Nugent plays the dyspeptic dad for all he’s worth and Elliot Nugent is the aw shucks plumber. Roland Young is not the comic force he became in the Topper series but is still very good . One sees a little of the later Auntie Em in Clara Blandick.
    Well worth watching and thanks to Jon for providing it.
