Margaret Lockwood's Development into a Leading Lady
12 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film made in 1936 shows Margaret Day Lockwood's continuing her development into a British leading lady actress.Made during the latter part of her film apprenticeship, she is teamed up with the great Maurice Chevalier (Paragot) in a musical playing an honest waif (Blanquette), who is looking for work in cabaret.

Maurice, a landlord, has to leave his official fiancé, (Joanna Rushworth), played by Betty Stockfeld, because he does not want her fraudulent father to suffer the weight of the law for his embezzlement of £10,000 which a rich businessman will cover as long as Maurice agrees not to see Joanna as he has designs on her himself.Maurice feels he should leave his home in England and go travelling to France together with a talented artistic boy (one of his tenants Asticot), played by Desmond Tester.Along the way they meet the waif Blanquette who is short of money but insists on repaying Maurice's loan of 10 Francs as soon as she is in work.

The story is about how you should choose a wife/husband who is naturally suited to you culturally and socially and not for personal aggrandisement or for money.
