Jessie Matthews is a delivery girl for a posh dressmaker, but yearns to be a dancer. One day she meets a female impersonator (Sonnie Hale) who loses his voice, and persuades Jessie to go on for him that night. Naturally, she is a big success, and embarks on a glittering career, with Sonnie as her manager. Complications ensue though when she meets a man she is attracted to, but he of course regards her as just a chap - or does he?

This is a delightfully silly musical, with sparkling performances from both Jessie matthews and Sonnie Hale, and some lovely songs.

This review is from: First a Girl [DVD] [1935] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This early musical is a superb effort from all the cast.Although the British musical differs in style from it's American offerings, it still manages to engage with it's wonderful sons and dance routines.
This rendering is a remake of the German film made a couple of years earlier, with the gayness removed,a little two near the knuckle for the time.
The entire film is a delight to watch, I find it amazing that this film looks so lavish, considering the small studio it was made in.
Well worth watching.
