Gang Show 1937 worth digitising for younger generation
18 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

For former Scouts and indeed the current generation, The Gang Show 1937 remains an inspiration and a good example of a lost movie genre.

Like the BBC's Goon Show, whose name I suspect was an emotional adaptation of the title The Gang Show by former Scouts and WWII entertainers, The Gang Show phenomena will live on and on as classic revue theatre which used to touch hundreds of thousands around the world each year.

Pity that we have not been able to capture the essence of such theatre for the current world's viewing on television.

I would like to see this and other Scouting musicals appear on DVD or similar technology to help ensure that original Gang Show spirit remains readily accessible.
