4.0 out of 5 stars Unlucky, unlucky, some folks are always unlucky., 17 Oct 2012
This review is from: Date With a Dream [1948] [DVD] (DVD)
A Date with a Dream is directed by Dicky Leeman who also co-writes the screenplay with Robert S. Baker, Monty Berman and Carl Nystrom. It stars Terry-Thomas, Jeannie Carson, Len Lowe, Bill Lowe, Wally Patch and Vic Lewis. Music is by Vic Lewis and cinematography by Monty Berman.

A wartime band are demobbed and meet up a year later to reform their act. Only there's one or two problems in the way this time...

The very definition of the British support feature. Running at under an hour, plot is wafer thin and film really serves mostly to let the cast showcase some of their early stage craft. It's highly energetic and always engaging, while it's note worthy as a 1948 London period piece. Songs are foot tappers, with the wonderful "Unlucky" the stand out, and Terry-Thomas steals the show even as he breaks the fourth wall. Future star Norman Wisdom appears in his first film in a ten second role as a shadow boxer continually being knocked to the ground. 6/10
