Dir: John Baxter
Starring: Bud Flanagan and Chesney Allen
A stage hand steps in to save a theatre from financial ruin
This Flanagan and Allen comedy was less musical and more sedate than others, and is quite a charming picture overall. Midway through the film there is a montage of shots as Flanagan and Allen travel the country by train. This contains the following stock images: SR ‘Lord Nelson’ Class 4-6-0 No.854 Howard of Effingham on an express; a former LNWR ‘Claughton’ 4-6-0 on Dillicar Troughs; a close up shot of an LMS ‘Black Five’ 4-6-0; a shot of an unidentified express passing beneath the camera; and another cropped image of a ‘Black Five’ on an express. The interior carriage scene with Bud Flanagan getting fleeced at pontoon used a set.
