Time Out says

JM Barrie's comic war-horse trotted out again for More's resourceful butler to teach his shipwrecked betters the ropes of surviving with grace. It actually worked better as a musical in the 1934 Hollywood version, We're Not Dressing, with Bing Crosby, Carole Lombard, and Burns and Allen.

This is a delightful film. It highlights the absurdities of a class-based social system based upon accident of birth rather than ability. There are strong performances from an excellent cast who genuinely appear to enjoy working with each other. Sure it appears dated today, but that's part of its charm.

I find it unbelievable that this film is always under-rated. I think it's excellent. I love the silly bits of humour by the aristocratic family. I think it's a true classic
