By the time Tommy Handley starred in this disappointing backstage vehicle, his radio show, ITMA, was attracting 40 million listeners each week, all desperate to laugh away their wartime blues. However, the Liverpool-born comic's fast-talking style felt forced when shackled to the demands of a storyline, and his weaknesses as a physical comedian restricted the type of business he was able to carry off. Thus, while casting him as the devious mayor of Foaming-at-the-Mouth seemed sound enough, the events that follow his acquisition of a bombed-out London theatre feel like so much padding.
