| Slightly biographical
This film is rather different from the earlier films made for ATP in Ealing.Most of the previous films concentrated on her Lancashire background and how the industries were badly affected by the Depression.Whilst we have that at the beginning of this film we then see an older man take control of her career to launch her on to greater heights and that more or less is what happened with Gracie and her first husband who managed her career.This film tries ,not too successfully to make Gracie into a sort of British Alice Faye.The finale number is an attempt to do a Busby Berkley type number.I would say that the songs are quite catchy even if none of them became classics
