Underrated
22 October 2007 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Nicely crafted little drama set on the back streets of London's East End (?). Might look like a safe harmless comedy, but it boasts an authentic atmosphere, tight story and some great performances, especially from Fields and Desmond.

A couple of points to add to Mozjoukine's excellent summary (above). Firstly, the use of music hall song and routine. According to film scholar Stephen Shafer, this was a common feature of 1930s British films and is now hardly noticed or valued. But it is not hard to see why Fields became a global star with her singing and persona, very much grounded in music hall tradition. Second, Florrie's adoration of Hollywood stars in movie magazines is surely a comment on the pure escapism of this brand of cinema - to which 'Sally in Our Alley' presented a refreshing alternative.
