The Luck of the Bodkins, PG Wodehouse

Ah, the old friend Pelham Grenville. It's like being on a long trip then getting to sleep in your own bed again. To be fair, though, this is a pretty lackluster showing, with none of the old favorites appearing. Wodehouse doesn't do the LA apoplectic movie producer very well, I fear. This one is set on an ocean liner headed for NY and features a Mickey Mouse doll and a stolen pearl necklace. Summation: any Wodehouse is better than most things; a glimpse of the old Wodehouse in the steward character, Albert Peaseman.
