    Can anyone identify a film in which Stanley Lupino is a taxi driver and sings a song to his female passenger which I think is called "I've found the right girl"?

    I came across this in a film clip on a video that I recorded about 15 years ago called "To See Such Fun" narrated by Frank Muir which was a collection of various British comedy moments.

    Thanks

    Here is a link with a brief synopsis of all Stanley Lupino movies, except one. None of them mention him playing a taxi driver.

    This was from the film "Facing the music" (1933). Stanley Lupino recorded the song for Decca ( I have a copy of the opriginal 78) and, like most of his films, this one has sadly never been shown on UK tv.

    The IMDb lists Stanley as writing the lyrics for "I've Found the Right Girl" in an episode of Pennies from Heaven - but that's with Nigel Rathbone lip-syncing to it and it doesn't say which film (or play) it originally came from. But it does confirm the title of the song and that the music was written by Noel Gay



    Doing a Google search on that information then finds a site listing sheet music which says that this song was written for the BIP picture Facing the Music (1933) where Stanley played a character called Jack Foley
