Clive Morton

Directed by Ralph Staub



Print: black/white

Runtime: 89 min.

Genre: musical

Print Quality: B



'After the Ball' (named for another of her song hits) is ostensibly Tilley's

life story, filmed on a painfully low budget. All the usual showbiz clichés

are here. The most interesting scenes are Tilley's interactions with

various British and American theatrical figures. In New York City, she

works for impresarios Tony Pastor and Oscar Hammerstein: the latter is

not the lyricist, but his namesake grandfather. Sadly, this film doesn't

even make a token attempt to depict these men accurately. Pastor was

massively fat, and Hammerstein (the original) had an elaborate beard:

you'd never know it from the actors on offer here. The romantic male lead

is essayed by Laurence Harvey, as the titled Englishman who becomes

Vesta's match.
