My favorite of the many superb Ealing comedies. From Gloatbridge the accountant, to Dunstan and Dudley car salesman par Excellance. The magnificent 1924 swiftmobile. Every scene a classic. Alastair Sim, Terry-Thomas and Ian Carmichael at their best.
Arguably the greatest comedy of all time.
A superbly watchable classic British comedy that may dabble in silliness from time to time, but there's very few films from this era that are more fun. The cast is filled with some of the better performers of the time with the always very good Alastair Sim as the essentially the headmaster of this school for cheats, the perfectly cast rival Terry-Thomas, with the ideally good Ian Carmichael in the lead role. Memorable scenes involve the now classic wreck of a car sold by some dodgy dealers, and the "hard cheese old boy" tennis sequences. Anyone fond of classic comedy should without doubt give this a look.
Lighthearted fun that is now very dated. Thomas is at his cad like best and Sim never lets us down but they are still not enough to keep me interested.
Ian Carmichael, Terry-Thomas and Alastair Sim -- if you added Peter Sellers you would have the A-list talent of classic era British comedy. And they play wonderfully together, it's a pleasure to watch them. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Wonderfully enjoyable film with Terry-Thomas at his sleazy best and an always fun Alastair Sim lurking in the background.
If you don't like this film...well it's just hard cheese.
Hard cheese! A jolly good show!
I saw the Billy Bob Thornton remake quite a while bback and enjoyed, and as usual with remakes its diferent in take to this one, and to be honest, while this is a good film, the way story goes in remake was better while going in a diferent place. this film though ceretainly was a sign of british filmmaking then, Ian Carmichael and Terry Thomas work well together and some good humour coming through especially when eventual tables are turned,
