Hands down one of the best and most charming British films of the 1930s – shocking that it’s never been re-released properly! And amazing to see such a pristine copy, including the original registration card – thanks so much for making it available!
However, there seems to be a glitch in the export, lasting from 48:49 to 50:14. Is there any chance of fixing and reuploading? The same problem doesn’t seem to be present in the original source material, at least to judge from another version (a German-fansubbed copy on YouTube) apparently based on the same source material.
