Early Musical for Jessie Matthews
12 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Early starring musical for Jessie Matthews (her 3rd talkie) has her as a politician's daughter who goes aboard a naval vessel with her father to inspect the ship. She meets some officers and ends up in a show.

Nice song "One Little Kiss from You" is sung a few times, and Matthews does another number as part of a sextette. Of course she's in disguise so her crabby father (Frederick Kerr) won't know she's in the show. Slim plot and lack of more music make this one of Matthews' weaker efforts, but she looks great and still displays that pep she was famous for.

The film is probably better remembered for the screen debut of John Mills. Others in the cast include Anthony Bushell, Nigel Bruce, A.W. Baskcomb as Pook, Claud Allister, Basil Sydney, George Zucco, and Joyce Kirby and Wilma Vanne as Dora and Cora the twins.
