Review

Our Score
A vehicle for the irrepressible comedienne and musical comedy star Cicely Courtneidge, this good-natured and thoroughly silly little British musical has her pretending to be a French nightclub star in order to get a job, only to find herself dealing with gangsters with a grudge against the club's owner (Sam Hardy). Directed by Tim Whelan, this is a romp for addicts of 1930s English nostalgia who will enjoy the numbers performed by such forgotten acts of the time.

Summary

An aspiring cabaret singer adopts a French alter ego to help her land a job at a prestigious nightclub. However, she ends up stumbling into the middle of a conflict between the owner and a group of gangsters trying to muscle in on his business. Musical comedy, starring Cicely Courtneidge and Sam Hardy.
