Charley's (Big-Hearted) Aunt

Charley's (Big-Hearted) Aunt

Classic British comedy starring the inimitable Arthur Askey in an hilarious drag role.

A group of Oxford students - Arthur, Albert and Jerry - are on their final warning for a "long list of delinquencies" including drunken behaviour and miscellaneous high jinks. While on probation, one of them slips into drag in order to play a part in a school drama and is rumbled, landing him and his two chums on the carpet yet again where, they are informed, they're to be expelled.

Undaunted, the would-be queen then dons drag yet again and plays Albert's aunt Lucy - a wealthy philanthropic type who promises to put all manner of money into the kitty to fund an Egyptian expedition - in exchange for the salvation of a certain three scholastic careers.
