Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Will Hay returns to his celebrated music-hall persona of the cynically incompetent schoolmaster in the first of several films he made with French director Marcel Varnel. Having to bluff furiously to remain one step ahead of a class that contains the ever-mischievous Graham Moffat, Hay is close to his peak as he lectures to a conference of educationalists, flirts with chanteuse Lilli Palmer and helps prevent the theft of the Mona Lisa. However, nothing beats his turning a discussion on betting into a lesson on Agincourt to fool an aggressive governor (Martita Hunt).
