A Fire Has Been Arranged DVD Cover

Bud Flanagan and Chesney Allen were a smash hit in this pre-war crime caper featuring their top of the bill comedy characters!

Ches and Bud raid a jewellery shop and manage to evade the law just long enough to bury their ill-gotten gains. After ten years in the clink, they are released and race to recover their jewels.

However, while they've been inside, Messrs. Shuffle & Cutte have built a store on top of their gems. It seems like they're lost forever - until fate lends a hand. They are caught acting suspiciously and taken before the manager (Alastair Sim) who reveals that the store is facing imminent bankruptcy. There may be one drastic solution that will solve all their problems - arson...

One of Britain's best-loved comedy double acts, Flanagan & Allen are at their best in this hilarious star vehicle, aided and abetted by Alastair Sim at his most sinister!
