Review: Charmed by Over the Garden Wall,I took a look at the other titles in Network’s 2nd Musical box set. Looking at the run times, I spotted another short & sweet sounding flick,which led to me trying to keep to the rhythm. The plot: After playing a show conductor/singer Harry Wade goes back stage and crosses paths with royal Princess Paula. Falling for each other, Wade and Paula find their class to tear their romance apart. Going on tour, Wade starts thinking about how to get his love for Paula into a romantic rhythm. View on the film: Unlike the slightly dusty transfer to Garden, Network deliver a spot-on transfer, with the image being clean, and the soundtrack hitting the high notes. Stringing the film round the Musical numbers, the screenplay by Jack Byrd and Syd Courtenay make the romance between Wade and Paula one that is too bare to hit a chord, with the minimal scenes they share together, causing their separation to lack any mood of longing love. Whilst not able to bring sparks to the romance, director Alfred J. Goulding & cinematographer Ernest Palmer still flash some style in the Musical numbers, with a loop the loop ending allowing the movie to finally soar. Appearing uncomfortable when not singing, Harry Roy gives an ill at ease performance as Wade,which is evened out by the relax, breezy performance from Roy’s then-wife Princess Pearl as Paula, who keeps all in rhythm.
