Theme tune
4 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it was first released in about 1950. It was a typical British B movie made on a low budget but was pleasant enough. The story basically was how a group of friends got together to build a small sailing yacht (the "Ha'penny Breeze") which they entered in a race. Guess who won!

However, I remember the movie particularly because it had a very tuneful theme, which was broadcast a lot on radio at that time and must have gone quite high in the charts (if there were charts then). I recall that it was written by Phil Green, a bandleader and light music composer.
