The beginning of Jesse's film career
23 October 2015 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

The inexperience of the leading actors in the new sound medium is more than evident though in different ways.Gene Gerrard was a stage actor and music hall comedian whose career would come to an end in 1938.He is allowed to wildly overactive.Jessie Matthews is here in the first sound film of her glittering career.In this film she seems rather uncertain.She would blossom at Gaumont British under Michael Balcon and Victor Saville.She does have some rather appealing numbers,which are the best part of a rather earthbound film.Her last dance is very reminiscent of her famous dance in Evergreen.Kay Hammond plays her sister.Difficult to believe that she would go on to be such a famed actress.
