A less than exciting night
8 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was the last film of a brief film career of Vera Lynn who at the time of writing is still going strong at 99.She is an iconic singer but she is not an actress,so she is at rather a disadvantage trying to carry the film as the leading lady.The producers were rather tempting fate by using the title,particularly since it does not live up to the contents of the film.The best part of the film are the musical numbers,none of which are memorable or formed part of her later repertoire.The story is rather witless and is typical of films made in the wartime.The version on the DVD is 70 minutes long and it has to be said that this is a small mercy.
