Light, slight story, but very sweet

There is not a whole lot of story or plot, but the cast members are uniformly talented and their characters are generally likable.

That plus the production values and the interesting look at England, and especially London, in the early 1930s make "Service for Ladies" a pleasant entertainment.

I saw this on Turner Classic Movies and, as I have found with so many English movies on TCM, the sound was rather garbled and hard to understand.

Perhaps it's just the age of the film -- I mean, surely it's not the age of the ears.

Regardless, "Service for Ladies" is fun, definitely watchable.
