Time Out says

A Cockney flower girl (Balfour) falls in love with a policeman (Holloway) after he saves her from an oncoming car. But her inveterate gambler of a dad (Harker) is in trouble with the law. A cheerful enough British comedy with surprisingly high production values, this none the less seems like a film out of time. Its star is reprising a role she first performed in 1921 in a play by Clifford Seyler and George Pearson. Inevitably, the years tell. Judging by all the singalongs, the film-makers are trying to pass her off as London's answer to Gracie Fields. Unfortunately Britain's one time 'Queen of Happiness' has long since passed her sell by date.
