I'm inserting reviews for films that lack one... this showed last month on satellite station talking pictures, but no one else has taken the plunge so here goes... A couple of English chaps touring the continent both fall for the same girl, who they try to make into a musical star, that's about it plot wise! In the cut 1 hour version it doesn't outstay it's welcome, there are a few musical numbers, but the only notable name involved is Naunton Wayne who played 'Caldicott' one half of the cricket mad pair of characters, that featured in a few superior British films in the decade ahead; I will watch any old British film that comes my way, on that low level of expectation this is OK! But I couldn't help thinking, 1933, the Americans were making 'Flying Down to Rio'! But though I have great fondness for British films, they nor anyone else ever got close to the standard of the great American musicals.
