Arthur Askey, one of the most beloved British comedians of the first half of the 20th century, stars in this irreverent 1944 musical satire in which a World War II bomber and his crew make an emergency landing on island ruled by scantily clad women. This lightly surreal comedy presages, in its own gentle way, the kind of modern absurdist humor that Monty Python would epitomize decades later.
