Note: Many thanks to “Movies Man” for sending me a copy of this movie, audio quality is not very good, I boosted the volume a bit to make it better.
I watched this movie just for Radford & Wayne aka Charters & Caldicot aka Prendergast & Fatherington. This is one of their best showcases. Their exchanges are hilarious, and it’s touching seeing how kind they are to the girl to pick up her spirits while Tony dumps on her. Also funny seeing how goofy they become as they both fall for her, esp Prendergast.
The concert & floating mine sequence was very suspenseful – very well done.
Joan Greenwood was excellent as she portrayed a character finally able to speak again. It’s a shame that they turn her into the same blathering nag as Tony’s first wife – suggesting that all women are this way if given a chance to speak. A very disappointing ending to an otherwise fun & funny movie.
