The Gaiety Girls (1937)


 Thornton Freeland


 Arthur Macrae (scenario), Robert Stevenson (scenario)


 Jack Hulbert, Patricia Ellis, Arthur Riscoe 
British musical-comedy star Jack Hulbert and Hollywood ingenue Patricia Ellis share top billing in Gaiety Girls (aka Paradise for Two). Hulbert plays Martin, a straight-laced Parisian millionaire who falls in love with saucy chorus girl Jeannette (Ellis). The plot requires that Martin pose as a reporter who is called upon by Jeannette to pose as her wealthy benefactor: in other words, he's hired to impersonate himself! With all this going on, it's a wonder that our hero has time to offer a few song-and-dance numbers of his own, but Jack Hulbert does not disappoint his fans. Billed fourth in Gaiety Girls is Googie Withers, whose name would mean a lot more at the box-office within a few short years.

    Dated, but the music is a true delight

    I'm a big fan of the film composer, Mischa Spoliansky. However, like most films of this genre, the plot is a tad tedious, though it does have it's comedic moments, the debonaire Jack Hulbert delivers a good performance as does Patricia Ellis,and of course the music doesn't disappoint.
