Lassie from Lancashire is a 1938 British romantic musical comedy film directed by John Paddy Carstairs and starring Marjorie Browne, Hal Thompson and Marjorie Sandford. It was made by British National Films at Welwyn Studios.[1] The film's art direction was by Duncan Sutherland.


Struggling young actress Jenny (Marjorie Browne) joins her dad (Mark Daly) when he moves into Aunt Hetty's (Elsie Wagstaff) boarding house. Aunt Hetty overworks them, but Jenny is lucky enough to find love in the form of aspiring songwriter Tom (Hal Thompson). But their romance is threatened and nearly destroyed by Margie (Marjorie Sandford), the jealous star actress of the local pierrot troupe. However, the young lovers move on to bigger and better things after winning a London West End theatre contract.


Critical reception

TV Guide gave the film two out of four stars, calling it "An amusing little romantic comedy."[2] The Monthly Film Bulletin described the film as "charming little love story [which] is merely the excuse for a number of catchy songs and jokes which are not only funny but clean."[3]
