  • Description

    From playful romantic comedies to variety extravaganzas, the British musical films of the 1930s 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.

    Blossom Time (1934)
    World-renowned tenor Richard Tauber features in a dramatisation of the life of Schubert, focusing on the composer's unrequited love for a dance master's daughter.
    Black and White / 86 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English

    Over The Garden Wall (1934)
    An aunt objects to the romance between her nephew and a neighbour's niece, and the two aunts step in to put an end to the love affair - with comic consequences...
    Black and White / 64 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English

    Mister Cinders (1934)
    The Cinderella story is reversed in this light-hearted adaptation, with Cinders a young man who eventually wins the 'princess' - in this case, an oil millionaire's daughter!
    Black and White / 69 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English

    Everything Is Rhythm (1936)
    Based on the spectacular rise of bandleader and vaudevillian Harry Roy, this is the comic tale of a Ruritanian princess who elopes with a dance-band leader.
    Black and White / 69 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English
