  • Description

    From playful romantic comedies to variety extravaganzas, the pre-war British musical films offered audiences a source of much-needed escapism throughout the decade haunted by the Great Depression and the growing menace of war. Often adapting much-loved hits of the music hall as well as serving as vehicles for the era's composers, performers and band leaders, they showcased home-grown talent alongside some of Hollywood's most bankable stars.

    This ongoing, multi-volume collection makes available a wealth of rare gems from the very earliest days of the British talkies, many of which have remained unseen since their original release; each film is presented uncut, in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

    HAPPY (1934)

    A young musician invents an anti-theft device for cars, but works as a jazz conductor while waiting for his invention to be successful.

    Black and White / 77 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / English

    INVITATION TO THE WALTZ (1935)

    London, 1804: as the threat of Napoleonic invasion looms ever closer, a German duke and potential ally of England falls for a pretty ballerina...

    Black and White / 75 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / English

    GLAMOROUS NIGHT (1937)

    Based on Ivor Novello's hit stage play: an opera singer and her gypsy friends try to rescue their king from the clutches of a would-be dictator.

    Black and White / 71 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / English

    LET'S MAKE A NIGHT OF IT (1937)

    Unbeknown to each other, a husband and wife acquire separate nightclubs in the same London street; however, both clubs are on the brink of bankruptcy...
