Review of "Will Hay - Oh Mr Porter (DVD)"
OH MR PORTER
The enigmatic Will Hay stars with his 2 long standing cohorts Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt.
Here we see them in charge of a railway station bringing their usual brand of chaos and hilarity.
Here Will meets up with Jeremiah Harbottle and Albert Brown and soon all three of them are getting drunk, having punch ups eating customer’s piglets for breakfast oh and getting involved with gun running.
There is a tale about 1 eyed Joe the ghost who haunts the railway line and the gun runners use this to smuggle guns.You can easily guess how this turns out; films from this era always had happy endings. However it’s how you get to that ending that sets a film apart from its contempories.
And this film really is a cut above. The jokes are none stop, the slapstick well timed and the ending, ok, expected.
Completely inoffensive and kids could watch it comfortably.
This was apparently Wills favourite film and it shows. A deliciously nostalgic film that will not disappoint. .DVD Info;
No extras, only chapter selection with this single DVD.
The picture and sound quality are better than most film from this time.
