Gert and Daisy were two popular radio stars of the 1940s,who incidentally were the sisters of Jack Warner,of Dixon of Dock Green fame.This film is made by Butchers who were synonymous with B pictures in the UK.They started at the dawn of cinema and went on till quite late in the 20th Century.They were well noted for their meagre budgets as is all too apparent in this film.There are it has to be said a couple of decent tunes and there is good support from such reliables as John Slater and Wally Patch.However when all is said and done this is not a film that you can sit down and be entertained by.It is more a film where you can bit sit and wonder how easily people must have been to entertain in the 1940s.So really only for people like myself who are great fans of British B movies.
