Synopsis by Hal Erickson
There's no one named Bob in the British comedy Bob's Your Uncle; the title is a bit of cockney slang, which we won't attempt to interpret here. Albert Modley stars as a Royal Guardsman who pines for Jean Colin, the daughter of commanding officer H. B. Maltby. To prove his worth, Modley spearheads a pass-the-plate movement to finance a tank for his little village. One can gauge the subtlety of Bob's Your Uncle by its character names: Dolly Diehard, Sgt. Brownfoot etc. The film was based on the rollicking stage play by Vera Allinson.
