Bright musical comedy
20 August 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Betty Balfour was supposedly 33 when she made this bright musical comedy with a great cast.Quite frankly she looks more like 45.So it's little surprise that this remake of one of her twenties starring vehicles did not put her back on top.She had previously been third billed to Jessie Matthews who was now the top star.Sadly little remained of her career which spiralled into despair.Not the first nor the last to suffer this fate.There is an excellent supporting cast which includes Stanley Holloway doing one of his monologues.Gordon Harker plays her father.Ronald Shiner in one of his many small roles on the way to stardom.Balfour was clearly a great talent but her time had come and gone.
