Sailing Along is a 1938 British musical comedy film directed by Sonnie Hale and starring Jessie Matthews, Barry MacKay, Roland Young, Jack Whiting, Frank Pettingell, Noel Madison and Alastair Sim.[1] The screenplay concerns a woman who gives up her chances of stardom to be with a man.


A barge-owner's adopted daughter, Jessie Mathews falls in love with his son, and gives up her chances of stardom to be with him.[2]


Critical reception

In a contemporary review, The Monthly Film Bulletin wrote, "The best features of the film are the songs and the dances which are cleverly treated, particularly in the final sequence where Kay and Dicky perform a really original and brilliantly executed tap ballet. Jessie Matthews acts Kay with unrestrained gaiety and fire, sings adequately and dances superbly. Jack Whiting, as Dicky, matches her in dancing ability and outshines her in singing and acting, Barry Mackay tries hard not to make Steve too imbecile, while Roland Young (Gulliver) and Athene Seyler, as his prim sister, serve up a banquet of laughs from the few crumbs that fall their way."[3]
