A Night At The Opera?Not Really
13 November 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is the first credited collaboration between Sydney Gilliat and Frank Launder,who were to go on and make many classic films in the forties and cities.This film is a star vehicle for Stanley Lupino,father of Ida.He is romantically perusing the niece of an overweight and over the hill opera singer.He comes up with the idea for a publicity stunt where she will wear her jewels on stage.Predictably they are stolen.The last quarter of an hour has Lupino recovering the jewels and being chased backstage by two crooks.It predates A Night At The Opera by 2 years but is not in the same class.It is all a bit laboured and the humour is hard to find.Filipinos style really doesn't seem to suit the screen.
