WARM AND CHARMING

Yet again a film from a lost era of charm and innocence. The cast act out their respective parts well, and again add warmth and charm to the film. Robertson-justice plays an excellent part (as usual) as the pompous over-bearing Sir Beverly Grant. And, as the newly weds a renovate their cottage, viewers to the film are probably yearning to own a cottage just like it, set in beautiful surroundings.

Smorgasbord of English comedy greats

For anyone who likes classic Brit sitcoms of the 'As Time Goes By' type, this movie will leave you with lots of laughs and a feeling of bonhomie.

The larger than life James Robertson Justice, better known to fans of the 'Doctor' series of Richard Gordon book-derived movies, is always worth watching. He is one actor whose presence can keep a movie afloat no mater how bad the supporting cast. In this movie, he is ably supported by an excellent cast of English comedians, including the great Hugh Lloyd, Leslie Phillips, Ronnie Barker and so on.

Beautifully photographed unlike many other Brit movies of the 1960s, it holds up well. I'm not aware of a DVD release, but the print screened on free-to-air Sydney TV today was stunning. Look out for it!

HILARIOUS! (Only incomplete plot)

I saw Father Came Too! in a theater specializing in English films. I could empathize with Dexter and Juliet, who were tired of living with Juliet's widower father, Sir Beverly Grant. Dexter called on Roddy Chipfield, a Realtor, who showed him the Rose Cottage near Pillsbury. It was charming but dilapidated, with old well, outdated wiring system, no phone. Mr. Chipfield took a taste of the well water, and said "Pussy's been there already" (reference to the nursery rhyme "Pussy in the Well"). Dexter and Juliet had the place fixed up, which required the hiring of bumbling contractors, one of them dropping the bathtub down the stairs! (That dunce!) If that was not enough, Dexter kept demanding raises, causing him to lose his job. No sooner had the couple settled in their new home when Sir Beverly Grant put 30-ampere fuses in place of 15's. When he and Juliet drove off, leaving Dexter alone (as he expressed dislike for his father-in-law), he turned on all the appliances to prepare breakfast, causing the wires to overheat and set the Rose Cottage on fire. Dexter managed to get to town, finding all the firemen (and all of Pillsbury) involved in a historical pageant. The firemen bumbled the job but did save the Rose Cottage from total destruction; Juliet and her father saw the ruins, at which point she admitted that it was her fault. Finally Mr. Chipfield drove up to say that the Rose Cottage had to come down for new road, so the couple would get all their money back. He gave them the key to another house on other side of hill. Problem was that there was incomplete plot, as whether Dexter got another job is unknown. Still, I loved the flick even if my best friend thought of it as scuzzy.
