Missing, Believed Lost - Born Lucky

From Missing, Believed Lost, BFI Publishing, 1992

This film gave Rene Ray a singing role as Mops, a cockney music-hall performer who escapes the unwelcome attentions of a manager by becoming a hop-picker and then a domestic. She meets and falls for a tramp (John Longden) who is really a novelist searching for local cloour. She becomes the star of a play he writes and marries him.

Kine Weekly described it as an 'ingenuous comedy', adding, 'the treatment shows some imagination, if the stars shine but dimly.' The hop-picking sequences were noted as being 'picturesque and original'.

This film is "Missing, Believed Lost", please check all achives and attics.
