In this British comedy, a young woman begins managing her free-spirited father's waterfront pub and does a great job of it until the shipyard is closed down. To help the poor workers, she gathers them together to walk to London in protest. No one goes along with the scheme, so the plucky gal then does all she can to single handedly get the shipyard to open again. She does so by pretending to be someone else so she can get an audience with an important diplomat. One song from the show, "Wish Me Luck as You Wave Me Goodbye," was a favorite of soldiers heading off to fight WW II.
