"the burglar"    1969  directed by frank dunlop      vaudeville theatre, london

reviewer     stewart lane       morning star
"the saving feature of the evening was jim dale, proving himself once again a comedy actor with energy and talent. perhaps one day his full potentialities will be properly exploited and extended: when that day comes we could well find ourselves with a young-generation star."

reviewer  dorothy newton sheffield telegraph
"jim dale as the burglar is the undoubted star of this piece - he has to be weak, wary, with short sight and stumbling gait. in other words, a laurel sans hardy."
