Delightful Gracie Fields musical with Vivien Leigh in support

This is a delightful film with Gracie Fields at her finest in both comedy and singing. She plays a musical comedy star who comes home to find her father's market in danger of being closed by a developer. Her brother's fiancée is the developer's daughter (Vivien Leigh is sweet as the daughter in the twelve scenes allotted her during her first year in films). Gracie is a dynamo as she goes about scheming to save the market from destruction. A particularly hilarious episode has her dressed as a girl guide leader, who leads other market shop keepers in disguise to wreak havoc on the developer's department store. Gracie gets to sing seven numbers. The title tune LOOK UP AND LAUGH is heard four times. LOVE IS EVERYWHERE is heard twice. There's also a quartet of PERSONAL HISTORIES, a spoof aria from TRAVIATA, THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE and HAPPY ENDING. One number has no music but is a rhymed lyric - THEY WON'T COME OUT, regarding the boarded up market siege. There is even a background rendition of Gracie's signature tune, SALLY IN OUR ALLEY.

This is a rarity, but very worth seeking out. My print ran 74 minutes, not the 80 the IMDb states.
