Fancey full
27 June 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I think that there should be a desperate category for films produced by E J Fancey.They are well below the level of B pictures of the period.The question is how did he get away with it so long.Didn't the exhibitors realise that they were getting yesterday's leftovers.The screenplay such as it is is totally ridiculous.The story is about trying to put on a concert to raise money to save a restaurant closing.Judging by the goings on in the restaurant the customers would be better off if it closed.There are a lot of comedy routines thrown in for no better reason than to pad up the film,in between the musical numbers,also used to pad out the film.
