The Good Old Days
8 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film deserves another comment so I'm putting electronic pen to web site.If you like singing along to good old time music hall songs circa 1900 and you are a fan of Margaret Lockwood, then this 1945 musical film is for you.The film title of course is a famous song but so are: "Mary-Anne", "I am the honeysuckle you are the bee","Oh Mr Porter", "I wouldn't leave my little wooden house for you" and others listed in the film credits.I guarantee you will be singing along to some or all of the numbers. It was a revelation to find Margaret could sing and dance but a look at her biography revealed she went to the acclaimed Italia Conti Drama school in her youth as well as attending R.A D.A. so she was well versed in the performing arts.She also gave music as one of her interests in an interview.

The Victorian songwriter George le Brun is remembered as much as for the piracy prevalent in those days prior to 1905 when it took a bill of Parliament to introduce a copyright law to protect royalties for songwriters and their music publishers.Peter Graves again appears with Margaret as before in "Give Us The Moon" (1944) as he vies for her hand with Michael Rennie who both play music publishers.Michael Rennie appears again in 1945 playing "Kit" with Margaret in "The Wicked Lady".In the subject film Margaret plays Edie a famous music hall Marie Lloyd type singer who has to choose between her rival suitors.
