Farce panders to the morals of the era
3 November 2013 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Nowdays there would not be any situation for farce to arise.Husband and wife would go to bed and not ponder if they are married or not.In the fifties when this was made this was a matter of the greatest consideration.So as a result we have the usual door slamming,hiding in wardrobes,and denying the existence of your old wife to your new wife.This might have worked as a stage play but on film and in the fities it rather creaks along.There is a good cast.Diana Dors looking as glamorous as only she can.Sid James in one of his many roles,David Tomlinson doing his stuffed shirt lawyer and Diana Deckers,plus of course Bonar Cellano.One normally sees Cellano in thrillers or war films and he acquits himself very well in this farce.The fact is that this is really rather a film stuck in time.
