It is difficult to classify this type of film or give it a quality rating. As a musical it does not compare well with MGM productions but I hope copies exist. It tells the story of a Music Hall and was made in 1942 when many Music Halls and theatres were still doing good business. The film contains several acts, such as Wilson,Keppel and Betty,which may not be recorded elsewhere. My memory may be wrong and maybe someone can correct me on this but I think The Ganjou Borthers and Juanita were also shown.One of the acts is Charles Coborn, not to be confused with Charles Coburn.(Coborn was the Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo) Not a great film by modern standards but of considerable historical interest.
