Synopsis

Three British wartime musicals starring 'forces' sweetheart' Vera Lynn. In 'We'll Meet Again' (1942), chorus line dancer Peggy Brown (Lynn) is given her own radio show by the BBC, but proves unlucky in love when the soldier she loves (Donald Gray) falls for her best friend Ruth (Patricia Roc) instead. Songs include 'Be Like the Kettle and Sing', 'Ave Maria', 'All the World Sings a Lullaby', 'I'm Yours Sincerely', 'We'll Meet Again' and 'After the Rain'. In 'Rhythm Serenade' (1943), Ann Martin (Lynn) stumbles upon a mysterious stranger while converting a big empty house for evacuee children. Could he be a conscientious objector - or maybe a German spy? Songs include 'The Sunshine of Your Smile', 'Home Sweet Home Again', 'I Love To Sing', 'Bye and Bye', 'So It Goes On', 'With All My Heart' and 'It Doesn't Cost a Dime'. In 'One Exciting Night' (1944), Vera Baker (Lynn) is invited to sing at a charity gala after being mistaken for the girlfriend of a famous composer - but her big night looks set to be ruined by criminals chasing a priceless Rembrandt painting. Songs include 'It's Like Old Times', 'There's a New World Over the Skyline', 'One Love My Prayer', 'You Can't Do Without Love' and 'It's So Easy to Say Good Morning'.
