Light operetta were popular in the 1930s as a slightly more highbrow form of the musical.Producers were of the view that they were more palatable to the public taste than actual opera itself.Especially popular in the UK and Europe were the concept of multi language versions.Thus Gaumont British had a German tie up so that many German films turned up in British versions such as Sunshine Susie.This film is an English version of a French film distributed by Associated British.Laurence Grossmith plays the head of a society that rewards public virtue.However by night he is a sugar daddy who visits nightclubs.His son takes the married Frances Day to a night club.However when he has to go to a waiter to negotiate a loan for the meal she sees his father she goes and has a meal with him instead.Of course Day's husband finds out and a brawl ensues which lands both father and son in jail.There are a number of songs but nothing memorable.Unfortunately this film is all rather leaden and its brief running time feels like double that.
