I'm a bit surprised that the synopsis for this movie, in which the gods bestow on a lowly shop assistant unlimited powers to perform miracles, refers to the "comical results". The film has its comic moments but the results are cataclysmic. I've always enjoyed the final scenes in which the little fellow, exasperated with all those who want to exploit him, instantly creates a vast palace for himself, fills it with all the grandees of the world so he can give them a piece of his mind, and then in a fit of megalomania commands the world to stop rotating on its axis (the spectacular special effects are remarkable given the movie's 1936 vintage.) Actually his powers are not quite unlimited, he may end up destroying the world but there's one simple miracle he can't perform (you'll have to watch the movie to find out.) I've always had a soft spot for this Korda opus and I found the quality of this release quite acceptable.
Incidentally, the movie has a delightful musical score by Russian-born composer Mischa Spoliansky which is available, together with other Spoliansky film scores, on the Chandos label.
