Summary: Naive Stanley Windrush returns from the war, his mind set on a successful career in business. Much to his own dismay, he soon finds he has to start from the bottom and work his way up, and also that the management as well as the trade union use him as a tool in their fight for power. (imdb)
I found it solidly amusing. There were a few good laughs scattered throughout and the satire on labour relations was interesting, and I like that it attacked both the management and the workers with its satire helping keep the film quite well balanced. "We do not and cannot accept the principal that incompetence justifies dismissal, that is victimization" was definitely my favourite line in the film. I could have done without the silly framing device.
Good show, skewers both management and labor, describes a workplace where only a naive idiot would speak the truth and upset the apple-cart (and be sent to the sanitarium for his troubles). The extent to which skullduggery and venality is portrayed as the norm is a rich source of humor.
The first 25-30 minutes are dumb, but after that it settles into a very good satire of labor relations. I was a bit appalled by the film's attitude toward unions, but I managed to keep my liberal outrage in check, and besides, it's not especially kind to management either. It's not screamingly funny or anything, but it's amusing enough. Just skip the beginning.
