Back Room Boy (1942) DVD
Back Room Boy (1942) Director: Herbert Mason Writers: J.O.C. Orton (original story and screenplay), Val Guest (original story and screenplay) Stars: Arthur Askey, Moore Marriott, Graham Moffatt British radio funster Arthur Askey inherits British film comedian Will Hay's longtime stooges Moore Marriot and Graham Moffatt in Back Room Boy. Big-Hearted Askey plays a cuckoo scientist seeking peace and quiet in a Scottish lighthouse. No such luck: the house is being used as a rendezvous for Nazi spies. Beyond the presence of Marriott and Moffatt, one gets the impression that Back Room Boy was originally intended as a Will Hay vehicle, inasmuch as Hay's longtime scripters Val Guest and Marriot Edgar wrote the yarn. Young Googie Withers fares well in an a thankless leading-lady assignment. Here is the link to the movie at the Internet Movie database: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0034488/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1?
