Movie Info

Frank Randle tones down the impurities of his music hall routines in the British service comedy It's a Grand Life. Randle plays a put-upon private, while zaftig Diana Dors co-stars as a female corporal. Surprise: Randle's not in love with Dors, but his friend Dan Young is head over heels. In time-honored Cyrano tradition, Randle gets Dors' attention by rescuing her from the unwanted advances of sergeant-major Michael Brennan, then points her in Young's direction. As was his custom, Frank Randle collaborated on the screenplay of It's A Grand Life, reserving for himself as many smirky one-liners as the footage would allow. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
