This film was made during the production regime of Walter Mycroft at Associated British.He was a former film critic so you would have though that he would have known better than to put this dreary mess into production.Maybe since the cast knew it was so bad they went very much over the top.The film is far too much like a theatrical production,with actors trying to project themselves to the back of the theatre.Probably the only point of note is the appearance of Gertrude Lawrence in one of her very few films.However it is difficult to understand the reason British producers to make films like this when the nation was in the grip of depression and seeking to be entertained.
