The title to this review is according to legend the remarks of Noel Coward when coming out of a screening.To those of you too young to know Gamages was a big department store on the corner of High Holborn and Grays Inn Road,which in its toy department sold lots of model planes and boats.If you look at the battle scenes it is quite apparent that the crew of this film have never been further than the water tank that used to be situated under the floor of the main stage at Ealing.There are lots of familiar faces such as the up and coming Michael Wilding and Stewart Granger.This is essentially stiff upper lip flag waving material.Which is enjoyable if rather dated,so just suspend your disbelief when watching this.
