Available on iTunes, Prime Video
St. Martin's Lane, London, the place where street singers perform. Vivien Leigh plays a poor street urchin who is taken under the wing of busker Charles Laughton. He works her into his act, catching the eye of Rex Harrison, the composer who makes her a star. This was Vivien Leigh's last film before Gone With The Wind, and U.S. distributor Paramount held up its release for a year until that film had made the name of Vivien Leigh a household word.
