from the book, "Mops" by Oliver Sandys.
Simple story of a humble girl's rise to stage fame. It is all very naive and the continuity is rather ragged owing to an excess of varied detail which makes for lack of cohesion.
Renee Ray as the variety artiste who becomes famous shows talent. The supporting cast is adequate.
Servants' hall humour, music and songs are included.
