busking in the blitz
7 June 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Butchers Films who distributed this film were one of the longest lived companies (1910-1982) in the British film industry.They normally made films that were destined for the bottom half of the double bill.This however looks as if it was rather more ambitious.the cast contains,David Farrer,Ann Todd and Wilfred Lawson.The story is fairly invisible and concerns Todd who comes back to England during the blitz to find her ex husband and her boy.There are some musical numbers with the eponymous title number to the fore.All in all it is fairly entertaining and manages to keep a fairly cheerful spirit not dissimilar to a John Baxter production.To its credit it avoids any mawkishness which can creep into some films of that era.
