Review

Our Score
Elsie and Doris Waters had been radio stars for some 15 years before they made this rare sortie in front of the movie camera. Starring as the cockney tittle-tattles Gert and Daisy, they escort some East End evacuees to a country house, where the kids end up as chief suspects in a jewel robbery. The sisters usually wrote their own material and took great pains to be original. Consequently, they look distinctly unhappy with the rehashed gags penned by director Maclean Rogers and his co-writer Kathleen Butler. It hasn't dated well, but those who lived through evacuation will perhaps find something to smile at.

Summary

Two friends get mixed up with jewel thieves and romantic misunderstandings while escorting evacuees to the country during the blitz. Comedy, starring Elsie and Doris Waters.
