The Midshipmaid is a 1932 British comedy film directed by Albert de Courville and starring Jessie Matthews, Frederick Kerr, Basil Sydney and Nigel Bruce.[1] The film is based on the 1931 play of the same title by Ian Hay and Stephen King-Hall.[2] it was released in the U.S. as Midshipmaid Gob.[3] John Mills makes his film debut in a supporting role.[4] It was shot at the Lime Grove Studios, with sets designed by the art director Alfred Junge.


In this comedy with musical interludes, pompous economy expert Sir Percy Newbiggin (Fred Kerr) visits the Naval Fleet in Malta to see what cuts can be made in their expenditure. The officers all fall over themselves to woo his beautiful daughter Celia (Jessie Matthews), who accompanies him: she becomes engaged to the son of the First Sea Lord and her father decides to leave economics to the Navy.
