I was so pleasantly surprised by this made-for-TV film that I just had to offer a comment. Although written around late 1930's, I found the dialogue to be honest and meaningful, giving an unexpected realism to the music and to the emotional effect of the overall story. The film starts slow, but give it a chance. It has remarkably honest human moments - moments of honesty in the dialogue which takes the piece way beyond it's genre - a quaint English operetta - into the realm of exceptional musical theatre. I'd like to thank my friend, Dane, for introducing this wonderful music, composer and story to me. I have learned to cherish a new composer, Ivor Novello.
