A vaudeville show disguised as a musical
20 July 2016 | by happychick-52014See all my reviews

Is it a musical, is it a comedy, is it a play, the answer is all three. In the Vaudeville tradition this movie has a little bit of everything. A few scenes with clever word play and jokes. A few scenes with a physical comedy sketch. A couple of dance acts, and a few unmemorable songs. The fascinating thing about this movie is that this film would have appealed to older audiences of the time, people in their 50s & 60s longing for a simpler happier time. Mums and dads left behind to hold the fort and raise the grand-kids as all the young people went off to war.

The plot is quite light and unimaginative so as not to distract from the vaudeville routines inserted into it. An American lady arrives in London to claim her half of a failing escort business, with her enthusiasm and a new staff of good looking girls she brings it back to life. Best scene in this film is where the leading man does a comedy routine with a piano. "Ladies cloak room" Ho Ho Ho how very mildly ribald (just the right sort of humour for an audience of older people born in the 1890s)
