Great star's last film
18 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This musical is flawed like so many because it can't decide quite which type of plot it wants to be, a crime thriller, or a comedy, or anything.

But in between, we can see that once great star of musical comedy, Violet Loraine, who reprises one of her great numbers Let the Great Big World Keep Turning, plus three other songs. Then there's Gordon Harker who adds his own touches of humour, including a nice moment with a little wannabee Shirley Temple a-dancin' and a-skippin'.

Violet's best song is kept for last, she puts a lot into What a Little Moonlight can Do, and the finale is nothing like Busby Berkeley, nothing at all, except there are a few girls, there is a swimming pool, they do get quite excited as they remove their evening best and dip wildly into the water. It's a pleasing madcap end to a muddled film, which does offer some fine moments that preserve the presence of a great star.
