    I've just read Britmovie's synopsis of this film. It calls this an, "unimaginative version." How's it possible to think this?!! The sets are wonderful, there are songs popping up in the least expected places, the direction has a verve rarely seen elsewhere in British film and the story is adapted with guts and no fear that restraint (any) must be employed as it usually is, it seems neccesarily, in British film. UNIMAGINATIVE?? It's a film which goes all the way in all departments, astonishing for any age let alone for 1934, just a year after Korda's Private Lives of Henry VIII had opened things up a bit for Britfilm. Anyone else love it?
