The incomparable Will Hay reprises his splendidly shifty Dr Benjamin Twist character (the incompetent headmaster of St Michael's) in this breezy British comedy set in a quaintly observed America full of gun-toting gangsters. Comic stalwart Edgar Kennedy provides slow-burning support under the direction of Marcel Varnel, the dapper Frenchman who made most of Hay's biggest successes. Sharp eyes will spot Roddy McDowall in one of several appearances he made in British films as a boy before shipping off to Hollywood to win fame and fortune with 20 Century Fox.
