Provided a popular WW II song
30 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie shortly after its release just at the beginning of WW II and thoroughly enjoyed it. But its principal fame is that it by accident provided one of the most popular and relevant British songs of WW II. The song , "Wish me Luck", has it place in the movie as Gracie Fields' character leaves the shipyard for London to battle for the jobs of the shiphyard workers. But the words fitted admirably also for men and women leaving for military service. It was widely used in that context during WW II, users not being aware that originally it had nothing to do with the war. I have just been listening to a CD of Wartime Hits. It has "Wish me luck" as the climaxing recording at the close. Almost none one playing the CD today would realise that it originally was not a wartime song. But though originally used in a different context, it fitted the wartime situation admirably
