Trivia

Of Jessie Matthews in this film: Roger Phillip Mellor, in the Encyclopedia of British Cinema, notes " ...the image of her in Sailing Along (d. Hale, 1938), in a white evening gown, with a gentleman's black top hat and walking cane, performing 'Souvenir of Love' in Lime Grove's art deco luxury sets, indelibly incarnates 1930s style."

Where is Ginger Rogers?

God, how I wish this team had been doing the Astaire-Rogers movies in the same era. Wonderful, risque script and a gorgeously funny leading lady.
