Storyline

During World War II, the Canadian Navy gathered a troupe of diverse performers (dancers, comedians, singers, musicians) from its ranks and sent them off to entertain their shipmates, and the show/revue ultimately played London's Hioopodrome. The acceptance was based more on wartime-London's appreciation of the gallantry of Britain's sons and daughters from over the seas than it was on the artistic value of the show or the talent of the performers. The film is a fictional/fact mixture of the adventures of the troupe members, and the ending, only part filmed in Technicolor, is primarily the Revue as seen at the Hippodrome.

Canadian navy on stage
19 October 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This a filming of a wartime revue produced by the Canadian navy. Its' climax is the cast's performance at a royal command performance in London, England. The cast is made of up mostly amateurs, and their lack of experience shows in the acting. The musical numbers however hold up surprisingly well. There is one fantastic tap dancing sequence in a barber's shop and John Pratt's song "You'll Get Used To It" was a wartime hit. Although the film was made in England there are a few Hollywood names in the credits, which probably accounts for the technical gloss of the musical numbers. Most of the cast were never heard of again but John Pratt made an appearance in a few movies and had a successful career in Canadian politics. The movie still sometimes shows up on television, usually at some unearthly hour of the morning. Most surviving prints seem to be all black and white but in the original the final performance was in color.
