Those Were the Days

Quick Overview

Adapted from Arthur Pinero's relentlessly popular stage farce The Magistrate, Those Were the Days was a perfect early vehicle for the comedic brilliance of Will Hay.

More Info

Hay's feature-length debut is a typically entertaining study of the upstanding but ineffectual magistrate, Mr Poskett, while a youthful John Mills is the 20-year-old stepson who must pretend to be 15 to preserve the secret of his mother's falsified age; Angela Baddeley and veteran character-comedians Claude Allister, H.F. Maltby and George Graves are among an impressive supporting cast.

Presented in a brand-new digital transfer from the original film elements, this rare cinematic gem directed by former variety star Thomas Bentley notably includes a wonderful evocation of the atmosphere of an 1890s music hall, with Lily Morris and Harry Bedford among a number of leading acts featured.
