Lovely Margaret Assisted To The Altar by Her Acting Friends
1 October 2008 | by howardmorleySee all my reviews

The style of acting throughout this filmed stage play by Esther McCracken, is British 1930s "anyone for tennis" type comedy/ farce.Margaret looks absolutely gorgeous and is ably assisted in her route to the altar by her familiar company of actors who appeared with her in some other films.

The ones I spotted immediately were: A.E. Mathews (The Man in Grey 1943 & Love Story 1944), Margaretta Scott (Girl in the News 1940), Roland Culver (Give us the Moon 1944), Roddy Hughes (A Girl Must Live 1939), Wally Patch (Bank Holiday (1938) Martita Hunt (A Girl Must Live 1939 & The Man in Grey 1943) and the actor who played Derek Farr's father - Mr Chator played in (Give us the Moon 1944).Thus all the company overact disgracefully!!

There is not much of a plot apart from seeing Margaret and Derek's wedding nerves and watching everyone dashing about and misunderstanding people and things in true farce style.Bernard Miles plays a dim constable, Margaret Rutherford and "inspired casting" cockney Wally Patch, play magistrates but of course its all played for laughs.I smiled when during one of their premarital spats Derek slapped Margaret on the face and the audible reaction from her is exactly the same as she would later perform when Patricia Roc slapped her in "The Wicked Lady" (1945).In the opening cricket scene, if I had been captain, I would never have put on the pathetic looking bowler.His style of delivery had no pace and he seemed to come to a halt at the crease after his run-up before delivering the ball with an incorrect bowling line.So consequently he was hit for two successive sixes by Derek Farr!

I rated this film 7/10.
