DAVY

£150.00

Original 10 inch x 8 inch Black and White Still of SUSAN SHAW, HARRY SECOMBE, GEORGE RELPH & RON RANDELL in the 1957 Michael Relph Ealing Studios Comedy DAVY, written by William Rose

The Mad Morgans are a family song and dance act touring the British Music Halls. Young Davy is the star of the act but should he stay with his family or strike out on his own ? .

Text attached to reverse: Harry Secombe, one of Britain’s most popular radio, television and stage comedians, makes his feature film debut in the title role of the Michael Balcon-Ealing film “DAVY”. Produced and directed by Basil Dearden and Michael Relph from an original story by William Rose, this comedy-drama tells of one momentous afternoon in the life of a music-hall family act of which Secombe is the cornerstone. He is offered a chance to go into opera; but if he takes it the act will collapse. The choice he has to make is between loyalty to his family and loyalty to himself. Ron Randell, George Relph, Susan Shaw and Bill Owen are the other members of the act; Alexander Knox plays the eminent conductor and Covent Garden star Adele Leigh makes her screen debut as a talented young opera singer. “DAVY” is the first film to be made in Great britain in Technicolor’s new wide-screen process Technirama.

”Oops! Should have worn my glasses!” laughs Davy as he waltzes Gwen across the dressing room, bumping into the furniture as he goes. Davy has good news for his sister, her husband George and Uncle Pat, for the Mad Morgans’ variety act has had an offer from a London producer and is headed for success.
