Good Morning,Boys! (1937)

good morning,boys! 1937

Will Hay is hilarious as Dr.Benjamin Twist the headmaster of St.Michaels School For Boys. Graham Moffatt who appears in a number of Hays’ movies is a scheming student named Albert. He’s also very funny. If you like to laugh don’t miss this one. Hay is funny in all his movies but this one has a little something extra in his manic performance.

A gang wants to steal the Mona Lisa. The person who can do it for them is currently residing in prison. His son is a student at St.Michaels. Twist’s classroom is a shambles. He tries teaching but the boys, led by Albert, bet on the horse races. Twist finally lats down a bet. There’s a long sequence in the classroom where the lines fly fast and furious.

Dropping in to see how they are progressing is Colonel Willoughby-Gore. He ask the students a number of questions about India where he was a Bengal Lancer. They can’t answer anything. He brings Twist before the Board of Education in an attempt to have him fired.

The Board is amused by Twist and say they’ll hold off on a decision after they see how a select group of boys do on a special exam on French.. Thanks to one of the boys stealing the exam the group passes with flying colors and are invited to Paris.

Sneaking into the group is escaped con Arty Jones, the man who can steal the painting in sixteen seconds. The boys all go to a Parisian nightclub which just happens to be the gang’s headquarters.

Throughout the movie Hay is brilliant and he tries to keep the boys in line and out of trouble and also keeping his job. This will make you a Hay fan.

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
