100 Meme - Film # 47

The last few films have been that of Danny Kaye, a comedic actor from America ... so for the others of this set of 10 I cross back to England and to a lesser know comic actor - Will Hay.

As a favourite trick for his friends, he would rapidly write seeming nonsense on a blackboard, look at it thoughtfully for a minute with a puzzled expression, then turn the blackboard upside down and there would be a perfectly written statement of some kind. And he could take someone's dictation, and repeat the trick!!

One of my favourite films of his is Ask a Policeman where he plays a poliman in Turnbottom Round, which prides itself as the village without crime; there has not been an arrest recorded by the local police for years. Unfortunately, this means that their boss decides to close the station. With their jobs on the line, the trio attempt to stage a crime of their own, only to inadvertently uncover a smuggling ring and a headless horseman...
