Double bill of British comedies from the 1930s. Directed by Tim Whelan, 'The Camels are Coming' (1934) stars Jack Hulbert as an ineffective British officer investigating drug smuggling in Egypt. To aid his case, he disguises himself as a sheik and, with the assistance of pilot Anita (Anna Lee), rounds in on the drug gang. In 'Me and Marlborough' (1935), directed by Victor Saville and set in the early 1700s, Cicely Courtneidge plays Kit, who pretends to be a man and enrols in the Duke of Marlborough (Tom Walls)'s army in the hope of finding her missing husband.
