For the purist pointer-outer, Molly wasn't Vera's sister, she was her
friend so it didn't matter what kind of accent either girl had. "Vera",
in point of fact, had an accent that was closely matched by her
"father" (a man who reminds me of Felix Bressart).
OK, with that aside. This is a lovely fun movie with no pretenses whatsoever. The music is hummable and sticks with you after the film is over. The dialogue is witty and snappy ("Up goes her money, bang goes her reputation.") John Mills has a nice tenor voice and looks as if he is thoroughly enjoying himself. All the cast looks as if they are having fun and couldn't wait to get to the set each day.
The back-projection is no worse than any other picture of the period.
It has high production values. Very nice costumes and makeup.
The thought of the movie brings a smile to my face even as I'm commenting about it.
