THE SHOW GOES ON (GRACIE FIELDS) | Out Now

This semi-autobiographical film sees Gracie Fields play Sally Scowcroft, a mill-worker who is plucked from obscurity and thrust towards fame and fortune by an ailing composer (Owen Nares) who needs a singer to perform his work. A departure from Fields earlier films, The Show Goes On is less concerned about everyday working people overcoming adversity and instead tells a story very similar to Fields' own rise to stardom. Again directed by Basil Dean, the film was edited by Jack Kitchin. Full of classic songs and with an extravagant breath-taking allsinging-and-dancing finale, The Show Goes On is a must see.
