Lady Hadwell, the widow of an aristocrat is struggling to make ends meet by opening her home to the public. The youngest of her three daughters, Charlotte, known as "Charlie", is a tomboy. Their loyal assistant, Joe, is in love with Charlie. When he learns he has won a fortune on the football pools, he conceals the fact from his employers. In the meantime, her mother is hoping for an engagement between Charlie and an American millionaire. The most memorable moment of the show is when Charlie has to return her hired evening gown, and the rest of the guests at the ball also decide to cavort in their underwear.Synopsis complet

Derek Nimmo (Nicholas Wainwright), Christine Holmes (Charlie),
Hy Hazell (Kay Connor), Stuart Damon (Jack Connor)Commentaires : This show was expected to have wide appeal, with Anna Neagle making a musical come-back to the West End after 12 years, and the stage debut of the young pop-star, Joe Brown. The critics hated it, and it opened to what were described as “the worst notices since Judas Iscariot”. In spite of universal damnation, the show caught on with the public, and went on to run for over 2,000 triumphant performances. Except for holiday cover, when Evelyn Laye took over temporarily, Anna Neagle stayed with the show throughout its long run.En savoir plus sur cette version
