Bowes That
4 September 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Bobby Bowes was a popular musical and rescue star of the inter was period.Like many of his theatrical colleagues he had a career as a leading man in films before the war put an end to it..Like many of these films the story is featherweight.. He is going to stay with his aunt in the country when he sees a pretty girl on an adjoining train.By some fortunate chance she happens to be staying with a friend in the next door property..There is the usual meeting cute essential to this type of film..Bowes has a number of songs which are not particularly memorable and which he sings in a rather plaintive voice.You wonder how he managed to project his voice up to the gallery.There is a running joke about how old fashioned her house is and how modern is his aunt's house.However the modern house isn't art deck and looks rather dull..The formidable Berths Belmore is the girls mother.Once seen never forgotten..Despite the fact that the girl is only 17 years old they escape to a hotel in London with a view to eloping. there is a production number which utilises overhead shots.However it is nowhere need the production values of a Busbey Berkley number.They check into the hotel as brother and sister.A waiter tells the police .The police arrive and they are apprehended.However as you would assume with this type of film all ends well.
