My Learned Friend

Save it
A slightly desperate but surprisingly funny farce, agreeably tinged with black. Will Hay's last film, in which, as an incompetent barrister being kept till last as a bonne bouche by a criminal (Johns) determined to eliminate everyone connected with his trial, he frantically tries to forewarn the other victims in an attempt to stave off his own end. The dizzy climax, courtesy Harold Lloyd and/or Hitchcock, is a pursuit over the face and hands of Big Ben.
