Not Much Worthwhile Here
14 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was disappointing, with a rather dull script, unimaginative dancing, and a mediocre score, by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel. The score is surprising considering the much better work those composers had done in other films of that era. So, even though Matthews was reportedly a popular and prolific recording artist in England, she wasn't given very good material with which to work here.

Choreographer Buddy Bradley worked with Matthews on most of her other 1930s musical films, yet his work here pales in comparison to the work done on the others. For those of you interested in "The Dancing Divinity" as Matthews was nicknamed, her dancing talent was not put to good use in this film. She was capable of much better.

There are no big production numbers in this film. In fact, it seems as if the entire production was low-budget. Unless you absolutely want to see all of Matthews's work, I recommend skipping over this film. The film can be purchased on VHS.
