variety from mancunian
29 March 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was made by John Blakelys Mancunian Films.Its studio i recall was a converted church.It made low budget films mainly for Northern audiences.This film is very typical of the type of films that they made.Essentially it is really no more than a variety show/revue with a very slim plot line attached.Most of the humour is very broad and of the type most popular in the music halls at the time.It has to be said that the film has really lost what little entertainment it ever had and it is really a rather creaky historical document,showing what the various acts,such as Norman Evans were like in the mid forties.Unless you still enjoy the sort of humour on view in this film or are a student of the music hall you may as well give this film a wide berth.
