recommended for lovers of 30s British cinema
31 January 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Having watched this film i could not believe the travesty of the review already posted.There is so much of interest and so many different personalities that this film,though long forgotten,is essential viewing for anyone interested in Britain of the 30s.For example it has a 10 minute sequence inside a faithful reproduction of a musical hall.It has a night club sequence featuring amongst others Geraldo,and Stanley Holloway and Emelyn Williams.After all would you criticise "The Way Ahead" or "This Happy Breed" just because Stanley Holloway does not sing!The plot is hardly original,but so what.Watch this film and you will be in for a pleasant surprise.
