Almost the end for Michael Balcon
1 June 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The production details incorrectly show this film as having been made at Ealing.It was made at the MGM Boreham Wood studios.Unfortunately they were not that much interested in Balcon's films.Looking at this tired effort you can see why.In an ironic way the film rather mirrors the music hall it portrays.Both Balcon and the music halls were coming to their end and would be finished within a couple of years.Secombe was of course most famous for his Goon Show appearances.He also had a tremendous singing voice.However neither his singing talent and comedic abilities are enough to save this film.It does have a glimpse of what has now vanished forever.There is a brief glimpse of Clarkson Rose who was reputed to be one of the best pantomime dames ever.Secombe's film career never really took off and he made very few after this film.
