Talking Feet is a 1937 British musical film directed by John Baxter and starring Hazel Ascot, Enid Stamp-Taylor and Jack Barty.[1] It was made at Shepperton Studios.[2] The film's sets were designed by John Bryan.

The Monthly Film Bulletin said of it, "the story is sentimental but human, and the atmosphere is genuine."[3]

Plot

Hazel, the daughter of an East London fishmonger, is on her way to the rehearsal of a pantomime when her dog Patch is injured in a street accident. At a local hospital Dr Hood (John Stuart) manages to save Patch's life. When Hazel discovers that Dr Hood's hospital may have to close, she helps the local community to raise funds to save it. Mr Shirley (Davy Burnaby), the manager of a local theatre, is persuaded to allow his venue to be used for a fund-raising event. Hazel brings together a group of talented locals to create an exciting evening of entertainment. The fund-raising effort is a success, and so Dr Hood's hospital is saved.

Most of the second half of the film consists of the variety show, featuring various performers of the day.

Talking Feet was released on DVD by Renown Pictures on 11 Jun 2012.[4]
