Reviews

Michael Redgrave and Robert Morley head a stellar cast in this marvellous comedy of skulduggery and deception from Ealing Studios lynchpin Charles Crichton and Oscar-winning screenwriter T.E.B. Clarke - best known as the team behind The Lavender Hill Mob. Law and Disorder is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Percy Brand's growing son, Colin, thinks his father is a clergyman, when Percy's real vocation is that of confidence trickster - his frequent spells 'inside' explained away as missionary trips abroad. When Colin studies law and eventually becomes a judge's marshal, his father feels bound to retire to a fishing village. But he cannot keep away from his life of crime, and in no time at all he's getting involved in the local squire's brandy smuggling activities...

Genuinely enjoyable comedy with Robert Morley and Michael Redgrave. The script is tight and fast-paced, the actors are uniformly excellent and the overall result is a gentle and very funny comedy. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you enjoy British comedies from the 1940s and 50s, you will probably like this one a lot.

Both Michael Redgrave and Robert Morley shine in this gentle comedy which is typical of the type of film that British studios excelled in. Just sit back and enjoy.

Format: DVD
In 1956 Michael Redgrave starred with Audie Murphy in THE QUIET AMERICAN and returned to London to play in this exceedingly well-made picture with the cast which persuades one to add it to one's collection. After this year, two decades of screen stardom, Redgrave began to take a back-seat from filming due to the onslaught of ill-health, and much of the remainder of his appearances would be welcome guest-starring roles.

One thing never said about this picture is that Hotspur Films Ltd., its maker (with British Lion) and a company headed by its veteran producer Paul Soskin, was controlled by Hammer: on the up from its classic touch on distinguished horror, it began to spread its re-investment across many different types of film subject. Hammer had briefly been in merger with British Lion before the war, when still under its founder S.Woolf Smith.

Format: VHS Tape
well realy i bought the film for my parents which they were delighted with the video. it stars mickael redgrave which is about a ex-crook desperate to keep his lawyer son from finding out about his wicked past. Sounds like the plot of a po-faced melodrama, but it's actually a joyous comedy.made in 1958
the star cast are- Jeremy Burnham, Elizabeth Sellars, Ronald Squire, George Coulouris, Joan Hickson, Lionel Jeffries, Harold Goodwin, Meredith Edwards, Brenda Bruce, David Hutcheson, John le Mesurier, Michael Trubshaw, Reginald Beckwith, Moultrie Kelsall, Mary Kerridge, Irene Handl, Allan Cuthbertson, Sam Kydd, John Hewer, John Warwick
