Sailors Three (1940)

Directed by Walter Forde.

With Tommy Trinder, Carla Lehmann, Michael Wilding, Claude Hulbert, James Hayter

Sailors Three is a 1940 British war comedy film directed by Walter Forde and starring Tommy Trinder, Claude Hulbert and Carla Lehmann. This was cockney music hall comedian Trinder's debut for Ealing, the studio with which he was to became most closely associated. It concerns three British sailors who accidentally find themselves aboard a German ship during the Second World War.
Detailed surveys published in Britain in the early years of the war by the "Mass-Observation" movement, showed the popularity of comedy with wartime cinema audiences. Films with the war as a subject were particularly well received, especially those movies showing the lighter side of service life, largely because many in the audience would soon be finding themselves in uniform. John Oliver writes in BFI screenonline, " to prepare such potential recruits for their own possible riotous and fun-packed life in the Royal Navy, Sandy Powell had already taken the shilling in All At Sea before Tommy Trinder did likewise with Sailors Three, following his comic misadventures in the army in Laugh It Off earlier that same year."
