brilliant directing and acting, smart framing
Ever wondered about the cultural source material for Monty Python? Watch this bit of good-humored British frippery - it's all here, in the package of an early 1930's English drawing room comedy. Roland Young (he of 'Ruggles of Red Gap' lordly fame) keeps the ridiculousness moving along nicely, assisted by a well-chosen cast of British character actors who know their archetypal roles inside out (of particular note is George Crossmith as the idiot Earl of Stokeshire). There'll always be an England, as the song says.
My first "review". Mostly what James said. Seemed quite historical with newpapers controlling. The comments from the commoners. The twins marriage - forcing all the big wigs to endure travel. I didn't watch it all- these films arepure escapism. Wonder why the rest of the cast wasn't named . We all try to think we are royalty when we watch such stuff , but in reality we waiting the Post Office when the important ones show :)
A British Delight
Filmed in England in 1931 with interesting scenery and with a script the Brits excel at presenting but to me would be a big failure if cast and produced in the USA. Humorous dialogue and performances that put many smiles on my face. Actresses include 2 long time favorites Wendy Barrie and Merle Oberon.
