A broadcasting magnate hires Jack Hylton and his orchestra to give a worldwide broadcast from a cruise ship. Business rivals plan to sabotage the broadcast and put the magnate out of business. Meanwhile, a female American singer for the orchestra falls in love with the magnate's son, a highbrow who only loves classical music and not the jazz that she performs. Much warbling, swinging and stomping occur. "She Shall Have Music" is far better than the average British musical of it's day, which is not to say that it's great; - it's pleasant, harmless and inconsequential. The plot doesn't matter; that's just something to fill in between the musical numbers, which are pretty good. Oh, and the strangest part? It appears that the manager for the orchestra is testing a wristwatch television that gets used toward the end of the movie to resolve one of the plot threads, thereby giving the movie some science fiction content!
