Will Hay double bill. In 'Old Bones of the River', when Professor Benjamin Tibbets (Hay) travels to Africa up river to open schools for the natives, he experiences several setbacks. His new pupils are less than receptive, and when the commander of the local base goes down with malaria he takes on his duties as well. Aided by the crew of the boat on which he arrived (Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt), he sets about collecting taxes from the locals, with hilarious results. Whilst in 'Where There's a Will' alcoholic lawyer Benjamin Stubbins (Hay) is deep in debt. He finds himself being used by a gang of crooks to pull off a bank robbery, but manages to foil their scheme.
