In the first decade of the twentieth century Miss Marie Lloyd is the biggest female entertainer in England, adored by her public, in a biography commented on in song by 'the Showman'. Marie's first marriage is to fellow music hall entertainer Alec Hurley but it ends in divorce. She then marries Percy Courtenay, an adoring fan, but he is side-lined as Marie's popularity grows and this marriage also ends in disaster. Whilst Marie is a huge hit with the public because of her down-to-earth attitude, some fellow performers, such as Nelly Powers, find her act vulgar and a Mrs. Chant takes Marie to a tribunal, claiming that her songs are obscene. Marie simply points out that any vulgarity is in the minds of the listener and is acquitted. However, she is considered too rude for the Royal Command Performance, in which Alec appears, and finances a very successful 'Command' performance of her own. Ever unlucky in love, however, her last relationship is with a much younger jockey, who abuses her ... Written by don @ minifie-1

A Little Bit of What You Fancy
14 June 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Funny the remark another commenter made about "Miss Marie Lloyd" seeming like it was made in the 1960s. I saw the film knowing nothing of Marie's life. I am an American resident in the UK for 15 years. I love Hollywood musicals, especially those made about performers and songwriters of previous generations. "Miss Marie Lloyd" reminded me of the biographies made during the 1940s and 1950s of stars of yesteryear, showing the heartbreak behind the closed dressing room doors. I thought the device of the showman linking episodes of Marie's life was very well done, and the showman's tribute to Marie at the end moved me a great deal. The showman's being played by a black actor brought Bert Williams to my mind. I knew some of the songs thanks to Hollywood: "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo" (featured in "The Magnificent Ambersons" and "Berlington Bertie" (from "Star" with Julie Andrews) and of course "My Old Man said Follow the Van" which is so much part of British culture it's still parodied by radio commercials. The voice synching wasn't very good, but Jessie Wallace shone. She brought Marie to life, and the film lovingly tipped its hat to her spirit and her times. What a pity that there aren't more films about performers who were not famous in America- I would love to see more about legends who personified their era and their countries.
