Storyline

A couple of out of work songwriters try to persuade a wealthy stockbroker to back them. But he turns out to be broke as they are. A series of mistaken identities, misunderstandings and general confusion as our heroes attempt to make a living as songwriters in 1930s Britain. Well paced acting with some quite amusing lines, together with some reasonably good song and dance make this amusing Ealing Studio production worth a viewing.

A forgotten gem
9 May 2005 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

It is a sad fact that whilst many Hollywood stars and films of the thirties are still vividly recalled and their memories cherished their English counterparts languish in the vaults.This is one such.Stanley Lupino is probably only remembered as the father of Ida.However he was as they say a star of stage screen and radio.This is a truly delightful film which is as bright and entertaining as the time that it was released.The musical numbers are very catchy and well staged.It all moves along at a fair pace and is over all too soon.It was shown on Channel 4 about 15 years ago when i managed to catch it,so i suppose that i am one of the few people to have seen it.If you do get the chance watch it and you will see what i mean.
