Tom Walls as Doubleday in "For Valour"

Tom Walls has always had two separate kinds of stage personality, and in these two pictures you see one example of each. Either he plays a gay young dog in his own person, or a gay old dog in disguise. Sometimes the old dog is just that familiar figure of a thousand farces - an elderly rake with disreputable habits and a red nose to match. Sometimes, as in this Gaumont-British picture, the character is more subtly and austerely presented. But always the character has as foundation Mr. Walls's personal gift of impish gaiety.
