Gert and Daisy's Weekend

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Music hall's favourite Cockneys, Gert and Daisy (Elsie and Doris Waters) do their patriotic bit for British cinema in this ramshackle but lively wartime comedy when they help evacuate a gang of East End kids to a smart country house. Needless to say, neither the toffs nor their butlers and maids much care for the visitors, who are soon accused of stealing jewellery. Social historians will doubtless be fascinated by the ease with which the sisters turn the class system upside down. It's hard to believe that in real life, their brother was that nice Jack Warner, who used to play PC Dixon of Dock Green.
