Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

In this British comedy, the attractive wife (Googie Withers) of an army officer (Guy Middleton) conceives a fancy for her husband's former aide (Griffith Jones), who comes to work as a servant in their household. When she wakes from a romantic dream about Jones, believing their love affair to be real, all kinds of complications ensue. The actors give their professional best, but the plot remains paper-thin and the now-dated humour is only intermittently amusing.
