Head over Heels in Love

Head over Heels in Love

Sonnie Hale (1937)

U Certificate


Our Score
Having made her movie name under the direction of Victor Saville, Jessie Matthews went to work for her four-time co-star and then husband Sonnie Hale, whose first outing behind the camera this was. Adapted from a minor French play, the story centres on Jessie's inability to make up her mind between suitors Robert Flemying and Louis Borell. Unfortunately, neither comes across as anyone to lose sleep over, and Hale's inexperience shows away from the musical numbers. But it's engaging enough, and Alfred Junge's sets give the film a sophistication too often missing from British musicals of the period.
