Good Morning, Boys!

Where There's A Will

1937

Marcel Varnel
Director
Gainsborough Pictures
Studio

Dubious headmaster and his gaggle of obnoxious pupils get involved with art thieves in Paris after fradulently winning a French competition.

Fitfully amusing comedy is badly dated and never quite becomes as enjoyable as was intended. There are a few funny moments, but basically the problem is that it is not amusing in the least to watch a bunch of cretinous schoolboys and their antics, unless perhaps you are a cretinous schoolboy. Their sudden helpfulness and school spirit in the last reel is a nice change and gives the movie some needed zip, but doesn't ring true. Also a criminal waste of Lilli Palmer.
