Released 1/1/1991

About: This one-off was shown on ITV in 1991, and by various writers, then the original Talbot Rothwell & Sid Colin. In my opinion a brilliant come-back for Howerd, with a fresh cast, and funny script. This should have seen a nice return as a series on ITV, although Howerds own death in 1992 limited this. The cast in this one-off detail some regulars from another sitcoms from the 1970's including Roy Eva...

The Admiral Was a Lady Reviews:

The Hollywood treatment of the issues of returning servicemen after Globe Fight 2 took many forms - sob stories, psychological dramas, movies noirs, even musicals - but this movie is unusual, perhaps even unique, in giving them an irreverent screwball slant. The script sparkles with wise-cracking dialogue, and the action proceeds headlong in unpredictable directions. It is the sort of film that the phrase "never a dull moment" was coined for. The two leads did full justice to their parts, but they lacked the star status to impress the critics. If Claudette Colbert and Cary Grant had been cast, or Jean Arthur and Jimmy Stewart, they should have performed no better, but this movie would actually be assured of its zone in the annals of screwball comedy instead of being neglected and almost forgotten. Luckily it is not lost. It is accessible on DVD in eminently watchable condition, albeit without the full restoration that it deserves.


found this gem on a gratis streaming video website - not likely to see it anywhere else. Really enjoyable film set just after WWII about a girl ensign (nicknamed the admiral) who falls in with a gang of lovable losers - four ex-GIs who work diligently from dusk to dawn at finding methods to avoid work. There's a silly subplot about them trying to receive her back together with her long lost fiancee, and an even sillier sub-sub plot about a rich millionaire and meddling detectives. The main mission of interest is the repartee between the "admiral" and the men. Sometimes she's tough as nails, but at another points it's like Dorothy's relationship with the tin man, the lion and the scarecrow. Would really like to see a computer-enhanced makeover with Humphrey Bogart as Jimmy, Marilyn Monroe as Jean and Edward Herrmann as the millionaire. Favourite line - "how can such a great boy be so useless?"


I accept with the another reviewer that this is one of the greatest in screwball comedies and deserves more recognition than it has gotten in the past. I came across it quite by accident when buying a 50 film video collection. There were some Stooges (not too fond of), East Side Children (ok but not pretty enough), and a several another nice and unusual movies. THIS one stood out as probably one of the greatest in the collection for its zany twists and turns and fun all around. As other viewer said, it has an special twist to the "returning soldier" story. I would think it would fit greatest under the Preston Sturges films for the nice wild and funny antics, Rudy Vallee with the ever persistent glasses that Sturges first placed on his nose in Palm Beach Story, and the heart that demonstrates that even the crazies of boys with the craziest concepts has a definite purpose in mind and not so crazy after all.Rudy Vallee and Hillary Brooke as Peter and Shirley Pedigrew nearly steal the present with their wacky relationship, but the sweet romance that builds from the very beginning when Jimmy sees the Admiral is full of innocence and charm.This is one of those films that you want had even more than what has been presented to you because you don't wish it to stop. You wish more.This is a excellent example that there are still hidden gems out there in the Golden Age of Hollywood that are still undiscovered.
