5.0 out of 5 stars immortal and definitive will hay comedy., 18 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Oh, Mr Porter! [VHS] (1937) (VHS Tape)
this is the best film will hay ever made; by this time in his career, he was at his peak, the on-screen chemistry of him and moore marriott and graham moffatt would become timeless thanks to this and their next film "ask a policeman," and hay easily rivalled george formby at the box office.

this is the earliest example i've seen of the crooks of the film using a ghost theme as a cover-up for their illegal activities and it works wonders. this provides a few chills as well as laughs.

my personal favourite scene is where hay and his cohorts are stuck on a moving windmill. pure genius.

at this time, will hay made the shocking announcement that he didn't want to work with his two regular co-stars anymore. they would only appear in two more films together, thus breaking up one of the best and most successful comedy teams in british film history.

i was so pleased to see this film on video and then d.v.d.
