Early starring vehicle for George Formby, the man with the ukelele and the toothy grin. Despite being on his uppers, George is still prepared to pawn his beloved banjo in order to help his girlfriend save her niece from the orphanage. Help seems to be at hand when George is left a fortune by his old auntie, but unfortunately his inheritance is hidden inside a chair which has already been auctioned off! Can George and his chums track down his rightful due before his grasping solicitor (Alastair Sim, in an early film appearance) snatches the lot? It's hard to say, but he still finds time to perform both the title song and the classic 'When I'm Cleaning Windows'.

This is one of my personal favourites from George Formby. George's aunt leaves a large sum of money to George in her will, but knowing how greedy the rest of the family are, she wants to ensure her fortune goes to her intended recipient, so she sows the money into the lining of one of six chairs. All George has to do is obtain the chair and his rightful inheritence will be his. But it doesn't quite go according to plan, and it's a real farce as he (and a few sly competitors) chase after the chair. The task is made difficault because the chair is one of a set of six identical ones.
Brilliant performances from Gus McNaughton and Alistair Sim. A good laugh.

Formby is always good fun, and with Alistair Sim as possibly the only other recognisable face in this, it's a good laugh.

The print used for this DVD from Optimum is first class, very crisp and clear with little or no blemishes. Top notch.

In this film - as in every Formby film - goofish gormless George always gets the girl. Why?

Cus he's a soft daft lad with a happy ukelele - and he's got all the best tunes.

Admittedly, the daft antics get more farcical - even positively ludicrous - as this film goes along (goat carried onto crowded bus wearing a dog mask being the silliest example)

The scene where a matronly nurse tries to take George's trousers off made my girlfriend laugh her mascara off. "Never touched me!" Not!

I was starting to feel myself "going daft" quite a bit at that too.

If you can't let yourself go daft watching a George Formby film you may as well watch something else.

PS: a previous reviewer's criticism of Binkie Stuart not being able to "act, dance, or sing" is way too harsh. She was only 4 years old! She looked cute enough in George's arms anyway. Turns his soft into sweet.

after the successful and ever funny "no limit," i found formby's next film "keep your seats please," to be disappointing.
the cast, including george, is a good one and alastair sim makes for a good villain. however, the plot is wafer-thin, the songs aren't exactly classics and the pace really sags along the way. there just aren't enough laughs to sustain this one.
luckily for his fans, the best of formby was still due to come.......

Another great Formby film and one that made me smile and chuckle on a wet afternoon. If you need this for a collection then go ahead and buy it, you will not be disappointed. Some good names alongside George Formby and it will while away an hour or so reminiscing in a time gone by.
