By C. FULLER TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Oct. 2008
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Charles Saunders had already directed several films by the time he worked on One Wild Oat. He was originally like many of his era an editor moving into direction in the late 1940s. Household names, Robertson Hare, Stanley Holloway and former dance band vocalist Sam Costa role out the action. The film moves at a good pace but even in 1951 it was considered a little dated. The main attraction is the genre and if you love farce then you will be amused. The print that Odeon have used is good and the liner notes are informative. Look out also for Irene Handl and an early appearance of Audrey Hepburn.

By John Austin HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 May 2013

The phrase "sowing your wild oats" used to refer the period in a young man's life when he felt free to have sex with as many people as possible, enjoy life, and have fun before settling down. The phrase, though not the behaviour, has long ago dropped out of common usage. You'll get the feeling of times long ago when watching this film, though it derives from a play written in 1948 and filmed in 1951.

Diminutive, bald-headed Robertson Hare is marvellous as the unlikely wild oats sower, and involved in the claims and counter claims, the scandals and the revelations are "full on" performances from Stanley Holloway, Sam Costa, Irene Handl, and Australian-born Vera Pearce. Enjoy also the first screen appearance of Audrey Hepburn.

The visual quality is excellent, as is the audio quality, but there are no sub titles.

It all depends whether you like farce. I do and this is a good one. Robertson Hare was brilliant at this sort of thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars One Wild Oat - Robertson Hare 2 Mar. 2000
By R A French - Published on Amazon.com
A seriously silly little gem with the great Robertson Hare (Oh, calamity! Balderdash!) as a much put upon little fellow whose daughter wants to marry the son of a bookmaker who lives in the same block of flats. Stanley Holloway(who improbably appears in VERY butch drag) co-stars, not Audrey Hepburn who appears in her first film as an hotel receptionist.(NB later both she and Stanley would be together in "My Fair Lady". It's the film of a play, and is stagey,(and incidentally not a brilliant print) but a lovely period piece with daft dialogue, silly plot lines and the most chaste kiss in films.Give it a go.

Simply because Audrey Hepburn appears in it!

She plays the roll of a hotel receptionist.
