VHS_SingAsWeGo[VHS: 1934 – 80 mins]. “Widely recognized as Gracie Fields’ best film, this magical musical comedy has all the right ingredients – and a feast of nostalgia!” An amusing star vehicle for popular comedienne Gracie Fields, which sees her cast as a larger-than-life mill girl. When the financially troubled mill is forced to close down during the summer, Fields makes do by going through a series of holiday-related jobs in Blackpool – including performing as ‘The Human Spider’ in a ridiculous magic show – that lead to some clever comedic situations. One day Fields meets wealthy businessman Grossmith and persuades him to invest in the ailing mill, thus saving the day. Starring: Gracie Fields, John Loder, Dorothy Hyson, Stanley Holloway. Produced and Directed by Basil Dean, and written by J.B. Priestley. (Also available on DVD). ANDY SHINE SAYS: Features various scenes of the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool (England). ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair.
