Review

Our Score
As there had already been a Yank at Eton, Oxford and in the RAF, it was only a matter of time before one was elevated to the peerage. Unfortunately, he came in the shape of Peter Thompson, a particularly charmless specimen of American manhood. Admittedly, he's not helped by a damp squib of a script, adapted by John Paddy Carstairs from his own novel, Solid, Said the Earl. What few bright moments there are come from the late Jon Pertwee, who, fittingly, made his film debut in A Yank at Oxford, and Harold Lloyd Jr, the son of the silent screen legend.

Summary
