Movie Info

In this British comedy, William Porter (Will Hay) is an accident-prone railroad employee whose sister and brother-in-law arrange for him to be made stationmaster at a run-down rail stop in rural Ireland. She wants to give William a chance to make good, hoping this will keep him far, far away. William arrives at Buggleskelly Station to discover that the last five stationmasters all went mad -- and that the ghost of One-Eyed Joe Miller supposedly haunts the building. Will meets his new co-workers, aging Jeremiah (Moore Marriott) and teenaged Albert (Graham Moffatt), and discovers that they supplement their meager income by boosting baggage from passing trains. William hopes to increase business by fixing up the station, and he arranges for an excursion by a local football team. Unbeknownst to him, the footballers are actually criminals, and he's just made British Rail accomplices in a gun-running ring. Oh, Mr. Porter! was an early credit for co-screenwriter Val Guest, who went on to a long and distinguished career as a writer, director, and producer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Oh, Mr Porter!


"Who is Will Hay," one may well ask. Well, apparently something of a Brit comic institution and this bit about a nincompoop running a train station serves up many good routines in which to amuse. I never heard of the guy before, but was pleasantly surprised by this discovery.
