Popular British music-hall and radio entertainer Harry Roy is the central figure in Everything is Rhythm. A spoof of Ruritanian romances, the story revolves around the mutual attraction between orchestra leader Harry Wade (Roy) and mittel-European Princess Paula (played by one Princess Pearl, who claimed to be of noble blood). The Princess' advisors disapprove of the affair and do everything they can to break up the couple, but love triumphs over all in a closing floor show. Essentially a glorified quota quickie, Everything is Rhythm benefits from the engaging performance by Harry Roy, who though no actor, is a winning screen personality. The film was directed by former Hal Roach contractee Alfred Goulding, who managed to secure a plum role for another ex-Roach employee, comedian Syd Crossley.
