Give Us the Moon is a 1944 British comedy film directed by Val Guest and starring Vic Oliver, Margaret Lockwood, and Peter Graves.[1][2]


A young layabout son of a hotel owner becomes involved with a group equally committed to doing no work and tries to join. Perhaps because the theme of people avoiding work was abhorrent to wartime audiences, the film was set in the near future.
