| Entertaining musical revue
This is basically a revue film.A minimum of plot interspersed with musical numbers.The copy of the film shown recently was much cut down from its original 89 minutes.Fortunately many of the musical numbers remain.So we get to see and hear Roy Fox and his orchestra and the inimitable saxophonist Teddy Brown.There is a long nightclub sequence featuring Fox.Unfortunately the vocalist is very much a lesser light not Al Bowlly.Biggie Green has a scene doing impressions and singing a song.The story,such as it is concerns a record publisher and his musical friends running a pirate radio station and the efforts of the police to try and catch them.The climax takes place inside Big Ben which appears to be under repair at the time.


Release Date:

18 August 1935
