Give Me the Stars Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Give Me the Stars is a British comedy aimed squarely at the regional audiences of the 1940s. [[Performer~P43992~Lenni Lynn~lenilynn]] plays an American girl (complete with a line of unconvincing slang) who heads to Scotland on family business. She appoints herself protector of her cranky Scots grandfather ([[Performer~P25416~Will Fyffe~willfyffe]]), who of course is not nearly as helpless as she believes. While tolerably produced, Give Me the Stars rather resembles an elongated music hall sketch. But Will Fyffe was enormously popular, and the film brought in the shillings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
