Our Score
Belligerent cockney character Gordon Harker plays a waiter refusing to be dismissed from his job at the hotel of the title. In this, his penultimate film, japes with guests and other staff make do for the plot. This is a pared-down, low-budget film version of a stage farce (in which Harker also starred), which is no great shakes as comedy, but interesting as a vehicle built around a much-loved British star at the end of his career.
