Glamorous Gracie
28 April 2007 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This was an attempt by Ealing to glamorise Gracie.Obviously there must have been some idea to appeal to a part of the population that would not otherwise go to see one of her films,or maybe it was an attempt to gain entry to the American market.To be honest it doesn't really work.In this film she is directed by her husband to be Monty Banks,who also has a brief appearance in a sketch.Again she is lumbered,an appropriate word if ever,with John Loder as her leading man.After all what woman in her right mind would want him at the end of the film!The musical numbers are reasonably well staged but there are no memorable tunes amongst them.This is a reasonably entertaining film but it is not a patch on for example "Sing As We Go" which i consider one ,if not her best film.
