Champagne Charlie (1944): an epic cockney-fest

The single most amazingly Wap Wap Wah Victorian cockney-fest in cinematic history. This film is brilliant for the following reasons: Tommy Trinder is initially hired to sing in a South London pub for a salary of ‘Two halfs of half and half and a pork pie’; When he goes AWOL for days, drinking around Piccadilly, they’re referred to as ‘One of his sprees’; To free up his hands for a ‘dust up’, he delivers the immortal line Hold this puddin; Everybody drinks and smokes literally everywhere, morning noon and night; One of the songs contains the lyric: ‘What to do, all alone, only a horse for a chaperone’. I could go on.
