Passport to Pimlico

Sustained, lightweight comedy scoring a continual succession of laughs.

With:
Stanley Holloway Barbara Murray Raymond Huntley Paul Dupuis Jane Hylton Hermione Baddeley

Sustained, lightweight comedy scoring a continual succession of laughs.

Story describes what happens when a wartime unexploded bomb in a London street goes off and reveals ancient documents and treasure which make the territory part of the duchy of Burgundy. Ration cards are joyfully torn up and customs barriers are put up by British.

The theme is related with a genuine sense of satire and clean, honest humor. The principal characters are in the hands of experienced players with Stanley Holloway leading the new government, Raymond Huntley the bank manager turned Chancellor of the Exchequer, Hermione Baddeley as the shopkeeper and Sydney Tafler as the local bookmaker.
