Formby on film
Print room operator develops a finger marking system which incriminates his newspaper editor who counterfeits money under cover of a brewery. One of the rare films in which the star gives his girlfriend a full-blooded kiss in the final fade-out. Brendan Ryan Leslie Halliwell's Film Guide A newspaper printer catches counterfeiters. Lively star comedy. What more could you ask for? Another George Formby release (his second that year), the lovely Googie Withers, plenty of action and - it all takes place around a brewery - lovely, get the beer in! George sings three of his best songs and the film is definitely up there with the best of them. The familiar face of Garry Marsh helps to make this one a winner! The uke solo in 'Fanlight Fanny' is far superior to the one that George recorded for the release of the hit record. Peter Pollard
