Cheerful musical
6 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie as it's from the Rogers/Thomas stable that went on to make the Carry On films. Tommy Steele appears in two roles and seems to be able to handle the acting rather well for a pop star, his cheerful personality certainly helps to keep the momentum going in this picture.

The musical numbers get simple production, there are no large dance routines here. Part of the fun with a musical is guessing when songs will appear, so you can bet your bottom dollar that when Tommy is being shown around a guitar factory, well, yes - he gets presented with a guitar and starts to sing.

This is a lighthearted film, but not a comedy. The support cast do a good turn in keeping this moving, but this is not a film to watch for spotting familiar faces of English comedy.

I've given this film a 5 as it's passable entertainment, an interesting outing from the Carry On production team in their early years. The songs, written by Lionel Bart, who would go on to write Oliver!, are not too bad, and there are even one or two hit songs in the film. Interestingly Eric Rogers, who composed for most of the Carry On films had a role in the orchestration for Oliver! (he had nothing to do with this film, the composing honour here went to Bruce Montgomery).

All in all, old fashioned, pleasant, unexciting. Worth a try.
