Full movie description "Tread Softly":The star of a London musical walks out before the curtain up, but the show must go on in a haunted theatre, The Regency. 40 years previously, the star of Hamlet was murdered, and more are dying to keep a dark secret.
Reviews of the Tread SoftlyJohn Bentley and his partner Harry Locke are working on a new musical review that stars Francis Day, but Olaf Olsen pulls the theater out from under them by getting Francis Day to leave the show. Bentley and Locke manage to secure an old "haunted" theater and replace Day with a new and talented face -- Patricia Dainton. She indeed has talent and charisma to spare for this movie, and she brightens up the proceedings considerably. John Laurie does a turn as a theatrical agent who helps Bentley and Locke get a new place for their show.
This theater, the Rialto, has been closed up for a long time under the owner, the slightly mad Nora Nicholson, who does a fine acting turn. Her son, who has her power of attorney, rents the theater. In comes the company and we get to see a good deal of music and dancing as they rehearse.
However, Nicholson's son turns up dead in the theater. There is a mystery in a barred dressing room of Nicholson's husband who died there and in his apparent re-appearance. Furthermore, Olsen doesn't give up and he wants Day to do some dirty work for him while he arranges an alibi. Later Ms. Day turns up dead inside the closed dressing room, stabbed as was Nicholson's son.
The show must go on and does, all this publicity merely attracting a bigger audience. And, of course, the mysteries are resolved.
"Tread Softly" is a fun programmer, with an odd mixture of romance (Bentley and Dainton), song and dance numbers, and murder mystery. It mixes well enough.
Although British dance in this film is outclassed by American dance, which is looser, bolder and freer, it is still interesting to see British tap dancing and jazz ballet. The songs are very good. Miss Dainton, while in films, was a real talent, moreover, who could hold her own anywhere.
Basically, this is an enjoyable little movie.
