Turned Out Nice Again plus Formby excerpts

George Formby was Britain's top money-making star for years - and oddly enough he was very popular in the Soviet Union too! Few of his films were exported to the U.S., however, due to dialect problems and the essentially British music-hall nature of much of his patter, songs, and slapstick comedy. Turned Out Nice Again, however, should have been shown here. It's easily his best, though his least typical comedy, with a stronger story than usual and some affecting pathos - plus some surprisingly risque sequences for its period. It was Formby's last comedy for Ealing, and is an interesting if unwitting link with the new brand of Ealing comedies, since its plot somewhat foreshadows that of The Man in the White Suit.
