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. OVER SHE GOES (1937) Plot and counter-plot jostle each other in this romantic comedy about a music-hall star who finds himself much in demand when he inherits a title! Black and White / 73 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English HARMONY HEAVEN (1930) The tale of a young songwriter, the actress who helps him find success, and the vamp who sets her sights on him. Black and White / 57 mins / 1.19:1 / Mono / English MUSIC HATH CHARMS (1935) This cheerful maze of melody, song, comedy and drama showcases the talents of Henry Hall and His Dance Band. Black and White / 66 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English THE SONG YOU GAVE ME (1933) Set in Vienna, this lively musical comedy stars Bebe Daniels as an actress who falls in love with her secretary, but has difficulty in persuading him to propose to her. Black and White / 78 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English
