You'd Be Surprised! is a 1930 British musical comedy film directed by Walter Forde and starring Forde, Joy Windsor and Frank Stanmore.[1] The film was shot at the Nettlefold Studios in Walton. It was made during the transition to sound film.[2] Originally silent, it had synchronised songs and music added. A silent version was also released to cater to cinemas that hadn't converted to sound yet.[3]

Premise

After dressing up as a prisoner for a fancy dress party, a songwriter is mistaken for a notorious escaped convict.

Cast

Critical reception

Allmovie described it as a "bouncy musical...At one point, the star ventures into Harold Lloyd territory when he finds himself manacled to a huge and surly thug who drags our poor hero all over London. Much of the film suffers from substandard sound recording, though a few innovative audio effects emerge from the cacophony."[4]
