Turns more interesting than the story
23 May 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film is typical of rescue films made at this time.Put as many turns as possible on film and link it with a weak plot.Many such films exist only in cut down versions,which means many acts are lost.Thankfully not in this film which is a very good DVD release.The musical numbers are actually well staged.I was intrigued by the.Edinburgh kiilted orchestra,comprised of teenage musicians and dance band leader exhibiting a fair amount of exuberance.There is a tap dancer,name unknown,wonder if it was Buddy Bradley,with a great routine well photographed.Yes there were tap dancers on radio.There are glimpses of Billy Reid and his accordion band.However Sally Gray has a truly awful voice,couldn't they have dubbed her?
