A soldier is knocked out by a blow to the head and this movie charts his series of dreams
This Flanagan and Allen comedy opens with a studio-bound railway journey that is formed of the usual mis-match of stock footage. It starts with a shot of holiday crowds at London Paddington, only for the departure to show St. Pancras with a train pulling out in the hands of a 1000-series Midland Compound! Finally, there is a shot of an unrebuilt parallel-boilered ‘Royal Scot’ on an LMS express, a shot that also appears in both Frieda and The Hangman Waits (both released in 1947). The crowd scenes at Paddington, meanwhile, uses stock footage of holiday crowds, and near identical shots to these appear in The Black Sheep of Whitehall (1942) and Return to Yesterday (1940) – both qv.
