Reviews of the Fun at St Fanny'sThis anarchic comedy about a boys' school is a straightforward imitation of THE BELLES OF ST. TRINIANS (1954) of two years earlier, which was an anarchic comedy about a girls' school. Seasoned veteran Maurice Elvey directed this, with an insouciant lack of concern as to quality, as the whole project was clearly just a lark. The dialogue is riddled throughout with casual jokes based on puns, such as: 'What are the inhabitants of Malta called? Maltesers.' (For those non-British film lovers, who are not familiar with Maltesers, they are little soft balls of chocolate and malt (a roughly spherical malt honeycomb centre coated in milk chocolate, to be precise). They were first created in 1936 and have been wildly popular in Britain, and apparently Denmark, since that time. Whether this proves that many Brits are descended from Danish Vikings from the time of King Cnut is another matter. After all, Brits and Danes also both like beer, and that has malt in it too. And the Brits eat what they call 'Danish pastries', so I think that just about wraps it up. Also, the Brits have been known to watch BORGEN. What more proof is required? Actually, I have forgotten what it was that I was supposed to be proving.) The main actor in this film is the elderly Fred Emney, who plays a highly eccentric, bumbling and very fat headmaster. The wonderful Stanley Unwin, who talked nonsense better than anyone in history apart from Tony Blair, only has a bit part, alas, as I can never hear enough of his superb nonsense, though I heard enough of Blair's to make me sick many times. Ronnie Corbett appears as a schoolboy, which despite the fact that he was already 26, he could get away with because of his diminutive size. Vera Day is the platinum blonde cutie who brings lots of laughs, along with her curvaceous charms, to the story and pretends to 'a dumb blonde', which was the fashion back then in films. The comedy in this film is uproarious farce, with no pretence whatever at subtlety, and one ridiculous situation after another in rapid succession. However, all the humour is very, very British. And these days, with millions of immigrants living in Britain who do not share the traditional British sense of humour in any way, and whose grasp of the language is often insufficient for them to know a pun when they hear one, this kind of film is not really made anymore. It is thus a quaint and jovial relic of bygone days. My wife and I laughed a lot, which perhaps means that we are simpletons. But we think that anything as silly as this film cannot be treated as anything than what it is, an excuse for bad jokes, outrageous pratfalls, broad over-acting, ridiculous situations, and hence a lot of good old English fun. P.S. Oh yes, it is also very corny, so much so that that in itself is yet another joke.
