Monday 13 February 1995
Since Henry and his chaps resembled a collection of small-town bank managers of ferocious respectability, the necessary dramatic device was to show the heart-warming effect on different groups of people of Henry Hall dance music. The couple having a lovers' tiff and a breach-of-promise suit were straightforward enough, but what was more complicated was the jungle scene in which a couple of dauntless WASPs, armed only with rifle, radio and terrified black servant, were surrounded by apparently half-witted, bloodthirsty, spear-laden cannibals. I can't tell you which tune soothed the savage breasts, for the film actually succeeded in sending me to sleep, but it made me smile that this had slipped through the politically correct net of Channel 4. I suppose it balances the racism hitherto manifested on that network by Jesse Jackson and Ice-T.
