Our Score
Even though he had a hand in the script, Will Hay is a shade below par in this patchy comedy, that is significant only for his first teaming with those much loved stooges Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt. After a promising start, the film is all too quickly blown off course once we're at sea, before finally running aground. Yet Hay's always watchable and still raises a few chuckles as a blustering sea dog whose bluff is called by a crooked tycoon bent on scuttling his ship for the insurance.


A blustering would-be sailor finds himself tricked into taking command of a run-down vessel. Comedy, starring Will Hay and Moore Marriott.
