Will Hay plays Dr. Benjamin Twist, a man whose ambitions outstrip his abilities. Twist is a porter on an ocean liner bound for America who, through convoluted plot twists, finds himself masquerading as a professor. Teaming up with a gangster stowaway (Edgar Kennedy), Twist finds himself embroiled in a kidnap plot on the far side of the pond that is complicated by the fact that two sets of gangsters are attempting to get their hands on the ransom money.

Arthur Askey and Richard Murdoch are discovered after months of living on the roof of Broadcasting House with their chickens and Lewis the goat, waiting for their chance at stardom. On their subsequent aimless travels in their overladen car, the Askeytoff II, they end up renting the haunted Droom Castle for the princely sum of £3. The perfectly natural explanation for the ghost is that Nazis are at the bottom of it all (in the basement), using a TV hook-up to Berlin. Of course Arthur has a...

En route, they learn that their target has entered the heavily defended Baltic; rather than fail, they follow it. Tension builds as they approach their target. After the attempt, escape seems impossible...unless they can refuel in enemy waters. Stars: John Mills, Louis Bradfield, Ronald Millar, and...

This is the complete 83 minute version which is much sharper and with a smaller download file than the 80 minute print already here at IA. The Hitchcock touch is readily apparent in this highly entertaining romantic thriller spiced with dashes of wry humor. Good cast and good FX with convincing miniatures. Adapted from Josephine Tey's novel, "A Shilling For Candles." One of Hitchcock's last all-British productions before the start of his Hollywood years. P.S. It's easy to spot Hitch...
