| Harry Roy and Princess Pearl star together
I have had a 16mm print of this for many years and so must be one of the few people around to have actually seen this.Harry Roy was a famous band leader from the 30s and he married Princess Pearl of Sarawak,in one of the weddings of the year.Joe Rock,a well known independent producer,had the bright idea of teaming them in 2 films.It has to be said now that in terms of acting they are very limited.However there are 4 good musical numbers,and the producer is clearly influenced by Busby Berkeley.The numbers whilst long forgotten are nevertheless very catchy.There are some nice art deco sets and a number of familiar British character actors of the period are to be seen.Given that this has not been shown on UK TV to the best of my knowledge i am afraid that the chances of this ever being rediscovered are fairly slim.
