Almost 70 years ago since this film was made, this was one of the last films by George Formby. It's a little whimsical piece that, if not a classic, still keeps a smile on your face.

George is a council worker (doing pretty much every job from cleaner to tea maker) who unwittingly gives information to a local newspaper that the council leaders are living a life of luxury after the war whilst the local people are living in squallor. George is given a job of doing a survey with the local town to find out there actual views and the negative results are overwhelming. The council try to cover up the negative press, sacking George in the process. George then decides to fight for the 'little man' and with the help of an eccentric inventor and his daughter gets his comeuppance on the corrupt council.

It's impossible not to like George Formby himself and he carries the film quite well, and is well supported by Robertson Hare as the inventor and Claude Bailey as the council head with much to hide. The songs, though a bit twee by today's standards, are comical 'the lyrics to 'got to get your photo in the press' specifically humorous. There's slapstick humour and everything is carried off with a great innocence. Reading on other sites this is often regarded as one of George Formby's poorest films and has been unavailable for many years. Although it won't be top of my 'to do' list I look forward to seeing George with his ukulele in his hand again soon in another dvd. Good fun.

coming to the end of his career in the cinema, "he snoops to conquer" has some good moments but i wouldn't rate this one as being a classic.
the plot is a bit too threadbare to really work and some of the supporting cast aren't all that good.
robertson hare was fairly amusing as the local eccentric inventor and the scenes with him, are often the best ones.

There's not quite the old spark in this film by the redoubtable George, but it is still good fun with enjoyable music. I am pleased to have it in my collection.

A bit plodding compared to other Formby films. Also, a couple of actors in the cast are really annoying! Otherwise, a must have for Formby fans.
