The British music-hall comedy team of Ethel (Ethel Revnell) and Gracie (Gracie West) were busy starring in the popular BBC radio series The Long and the Short of It (Ethel was the "long" and Gracie the "short") when they starred in a group of low-budget but high-grossing feature films. In Up with the Lark, Ethel and Gracie join the British Land Army, driving their superiors daft. Some of the military gags are so old that one feels they were written for Caesar's army. No matter: the film paid its way with the laughter-hungry British public, and then some. Incidentally, the Ian Fleming who plays Rev. Swallow in Up with the Lark is not the author of the James Bond novels.
