Music Hall Comes To The Movies
1 March 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Elsie and Doris Waters take their music-hall characters to the movies in this cheap yet entertaining movie directed by the inexhaustible Maclean Rogers. They find themselves bamboozled into taking some children from Blitz-torn London on a weekend in the country, where they get tangled up in a jewel robbery. Along the way, they sing a few songs, including the mildly ribald "She Was A Lily (But Only By Name)". It's certainly not art, but as an example of the sort of act that appeared in the cheaper theaters, it's pretty good.

The two of them were the sisters of the better remember Jack Warner. The two women show a great comic timing with each other, clearly honed by years on the music hall circuit. The ladies continued in their two-act for many years, including an ITV show. Doris died in 1979, aged 74; Elsie in 1990, aged 96.
