One Good Turn Reviews

Beginning in 1954 and continuing for the rest of the 1950s, popular British comedian Wisdom turned out a picture a year, starring as a bumbling do-gooder. This was his second effort, and it's an enjoyable yarn in which Wisdom works as a handyman at a failing orphanage. To save the orphanage from financial ruin, Wisdom gets involved in a walkathon and a boxing match, and also conducts a symphony orchestra. Most of the bits work and the likable Wisdom carries the film nicely. While his movies were very successful in England, they never gained much support in the US.
