Fantastic dance sequence opens this film, 4 April 2001
Author: elpep49

under the credits. It then settles into a routine comedy about a young man (Grant Withers) who is obsessed with dancing and marries a girl (Sue Carol) he meets at a dance. The usual domestic squabbles arise. Good support from silent comedienne Kate Price as well as Edna Murphy, Eddie Phillips & Sid Silvers. The girl who dances during the opening credits can also be spotted in the film. I wonder who she is?
