Storyline

Millionaire shipbuilder Freddie Gates decides to publicize his ships by hiring Jack Hylton and his orchestra to broadcast from his yacht.. Brian Gates, Freddie's son, has a low-approval-rating and a high dislike for jazz music and refuses board ship with the band on board. His father enters a conspiracy with singer Dorothy Drew to get him on the yacht, where the broadcasts will be made. Brian falls in love with Dorothy, but calls of the romance when he sees her dancing and singing with Hylton's band in Paris. Dorothy induces three members of the band to shanghai Brian when the yacht sails. A rival shipowner, determined to stop the broadcasts, bribes the crew to desert the ship and all hands are left stranded in mid-ocean on the yacht. The band-members manage to extricate them from their predicament and they get back to London, where Hylton is acclaimed and Brian marries Dorothy. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Marvellous memory of a great orchestra
9 November 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

We should be very thankful to Julius Hagen at Twickenham Studios for giving us a record of the look and sound of one of the greatest ever British dance bands.Basically this is just a succession of musical numbers linked together by the flimsiest of stories.This film was shown by Channel 4 in the late eighties and i was lucky enough to record it.They even had to apologise for the state of the print as it is full of scratches and abrupt joins.However even this battered print cannot mask or disguise the sheer stylishness of the Hylton Orchestra.We are even shown excerpts from some of his tours.Dance Band music at the Paris Opera!The band only had about 4 years left as it was disbanded shortly after the outbreak of war.
