Not Everything, But Enough
20 April 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Harry Roy (nee Lipman) and his band go from zero to wildly successful in the first ten minutes, and then he has to court his real-life wife, who's a Monrovian Princess who's supposed to marry a plump royal. When word of their romance reaches the court, she's ordered home.

Musically I found it pleasant, although not particularly original, between tunes that started off like "Doing the New Low Down", and orchestrations that might sound like Cab Calloway efforts or Kay Kaiser. Clearly the intent was to provide a variety of styles of then-current band music. Director Alf Goulding, who arose in silent comedy, offers some nice, imaginative staging, including one nice special effects piece in which Roy appears in miniature on the keys as his piano player runs through a number, and another in which he bribes a waiter to let him serve the Princess.

Although there's no sign of great acting, the low-key efforts are pleasant enough and it's a nice mid-decade British musical. Mabel Mercer sings a song as a happy bonus.
