It's in the Bag is a 1944 British comedy film directed by Herbert Mason and starring Elsie Waters, Doris Waters and Ernest Butcher.[1] Gert and Dasie try to recover a valuable lost dress. It was made by Butcher's Films. It is listed on the BFI 75 Most Wanted list of lost films,[2] but it was given a DVD commercial release by Renown Pictures Ltd in May 2014, although the Renown version is only 63 minutes long.[3]

Although IMDb gives a release date of 7 February 1944, the British Film Institute states there were early December 1943 reviews in the Monthly Film Bulletin and Kinematograph Weekly.[2]
