Delightful variety movie
14 March 2003 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie in the early fifties. It reflects a time when entertainment was performed without so much need for sexual innuendos and foul language. It entertained. I would love to see the movie again and would certainly appreciate a video copy but sadly none are available, are they?
