This Week of Grace 1933

92 mins United Kingdom Director. Maurice Elvey

A typically exuberant star vehicle for Gracie Fields, featuring the usual delightful mix of songs and broad comedy in a merry jape extolling class cohesion. After losing her factory job, 'Our Gracie' is offered the chance to manage a castle by a mystery benefactor - much to the consternation of its current aristocratic occupants. Comic routines, sentimental ballads and even some cod opera ensure that class barriers fall and romance wins the day.
