| Britains answer to Shirley Temple
In the 1930s there were a lot of child stars in Hollywood.Apart from Temple there was Freddie Bartholomew,Jackie Cooper and another English girl,Sybil Jason.In this country there were few attempts at imitating these child stars with the exception of Hazel Ascot,who appeared in a total of 2 films.This film is directed by John Baxter who appears to have had a passion for music hall and the theatre and many of his films were set in such venues often,as is the case here with a grand finale.The story is fairly familiar and had already been used by Hoyywood of a young child uniting her estranged family.There are a lot of musical numbers particularly in the last 15 minutes.Ascot seems to be quite talented although she employs a maniacal grin when tap dancing.The finale includes children doing all sorts of turns.Accordion playing,uke playing,string orchestra.It is all very entertaining.
