Gracies first film
18 June 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is the start of Gracies film career,which is most memorable for the introduction of what would become her signature tune "Sally".Her co star is Ian Hunter who was to go to Hollywood and appear in featured roles.The film is written by that well known character actor Miles Malleson and Hitch's wife Alma Reville,with additional material by her then husband and manager Archie Pitt.The film was made at Ealing prior to its emergence under Michael Balcon.The script is based on a play but it has to be said that it is as poverty struck as the films settings.There ate only 3 sets for the whole of this 75 minute film.There are a couple of interesting exteriors of Trafalgar Square and Buckhingham Palace.This film must have been a hit because Gracie when on to make a number of films at Ealing during the 1930s.No doubt her popularity in the Music Halls and Theatre carried her through this uncertain start.
