Undistinguished last film for Anna Neagle
24 April 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Anna Be able had a very distinguished career starting in the early thirties.this was her last film.However it is clear that it is Frankis Vaughn who is the main attraction.He must have around six numbers in this film.He was a great singer and I saw him later on in 42nd Street.However a great film actor he is not.In any event he would my have been able to save this dated rubbish even if he had been Olivier.Anthony Newley features as sidekick and comic relief.Jeanetge features as Beagles daughter.Basically this film shows that both Herbert Wilcox and Be able had lost touch with public taste and it is little surprise that both careers turned towards the theatre.
