This film was made when music hall was on its last legs.The Ginsburg Park Empire would close the following year and there would be nothing left.Vests Tilley was a male impersonator,but you would not have known it from this film.I remember seeing Hefty King who was an excellent performer.Pat Kirkwood was simply not up to the task.She wasn't really a film actress and didn't have another starring opportunity.Laurence Harvey appears in a number of unconvinced wigs under which he gives an unconvincing performance.So films,which with radio contributed to the demise of the music hall really sticks the knife in with this film.
