Along Came Sally
Originally titled Aunt Sally, Along Came Sally is one of many cheerful musical vehicles for the delightful British film fave Cicely Courtneidge. Courtneidge plays a dual role here: an aspiring nightclub singer and a famous French stage star. In the latter guise, she foils a gang of American racketeers who intend to take over the cabaret where she works. Director Tim Whelan cowrote the script for Along Came Sally with, among others, noted stage lyricist/librettist Guy Bolton. The film was released in Great Britain in 1933, then was unleashed in America one year later.
