This 1938 remake of the 1930 British farce Almost a Honeymoon makes a few slight alterations in the text. Originally, a wandering vagrant accidentally found himself sharing a bed with an amorous old crone. In the remake, the hero (popular cockney comedian Tommy Trinder, here making his screen debut) is a man of wealth. His inadvertent bed-mate is an attractive young girl (Linden Travers), who is occupying the hero's sleeping quarters when he stumbles in after a night on the town. Nothing really happens (this is a 1938 film), but you can't censor the gleam in the supporting characters' eyes. Like the first Almost a Honeymoon, the second film is based on a stage play by Walter Ellis.
