At last we have the only film record of Sid Field's comic genius. 'London Town' was the most expensive British musical disaster ever made, BUT it is the only film record we have of some of Sid Field's comic routines. The sleeve of the DVD boasts about delivering the highest picture and sound quality possible which was remastered by BBC Studios - I can't believe that the BBC would allow it's name to be associated with what looks like a bad copy of of a fairly battered tape. However there are compensations including Jerry Desmond (Sid Field's partner in his sketches), Kay Kendall (before her nose job), Tessie O'Shea, and the young Petula Clark. This film aspired to compete with the big American musicals of the time (1946) and was a big expensive flop contributing in no small way to the decline of the Rank Studios and the British film industry.
