| lots of interesting exteriors
There are lots of interesting exteriors in this film.It starts at the beginning with a parade which looks as if it has been filmed inside Ealing Studios. There are shots of the west end.The exterior of the Empire is shown advertising a Joan Crawford film and Laurel and Hardy short. Then towards the end there is a ride through London which features shots of the trams. Finally we get to see the exterior and interior of the Crystal Palace. Other than that this fairly simple minded film is basically a vehicle for Stanley Holloway.There are a couple of songs,one with the very offensive line and also another of his pieces about Albert.
