Dir: Gene Gerrard
Starring: Jessie Matthews and Kay Hammond
A baronet’s daughter falls in love with a radio star who is engaged to marry her sister
Based on the play Little Tommy Tucker by Desmond Carter and Caswell Garth, this musical was Jessie Matthews’ first major film role. It was not a success, and Matthews later wrote in her autobiography that the film, adapted from a stage musical, ‘should never have left the boards’. Towards the end there is a train journey on the Continent which is studio-bound. This includes a stock shot of what looks to be a French express and, rather curiously, a drivers’ eye view of a train entering Gasworks Tunnel on a departure from King’s Cross! This image is in fact a stock shot taken from The Flying Scotsman (1929).
