Teddington Studios, Warner Bros.' British production arm, was responsible for the entertaining quota-quickie Mayfair Melody. Popular radio baritone Keith Falkner stars as Mark, an auto mechanic and aspiring singer who is discovered by spoiled heiress Brenda (Joyce Kirby). The heroine prevails upon her car-manufacturer daddy to sponsor Mark's entree into the world of grand opera. Through his modest and self-effacing example, Brenda becomes unspoiled and falls in love. Mayfair Melody represents another excellent directorial job from Arthur B. Woods, whose burgeoning career was cut tragically short when he became an early casualty of WWII.
