Facebouk's,unoriginal musical
19 March 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film starts on a comic high which it doesn't sustain.At a fancy dress party Fred Emney is dressed like a chicken.Stanley Lupino is the star of this musical,which like many British musicals is based on a play.So there is a fair lack of originality.Illino plays a businessman who has invested and lost his money in a newspaper.So he goes to great length to find alternative sources of investment to keep the paper going.He goes to the newspaper to try and save the papers and matters are tied up in a neat way.There is a funny scene in the office where everything falls to bits.The best musical number is Hold my hand.The film ends with a truly bizarre musical number set in an iron foundry.Filmed as if you were sitting in the stalls.Compare this against any contemporary Hollywood musical and it comes off second best.
