Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

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.

DANCE BAND (1935)
Life gets complicated for bandleader Buddy when he falls for his greatest rival – the leader of an all-girl dance band!

KATHLEEN MAVOURNEEN (1937)
A hugely popular, much-adapted comedy in which a Liverpool lass visits family in rural Ireland and finds she has several rivals for her affections.

HOLD MY HAND (1938)Eddie Marston is wealthy and kind, but his affairs are rapidly descending into chaos. Who can help him?

YES, MADAM? (1938)
The hilarious tale of two cousins who must complete a period in domestic service in order to receive an inheritance.
