Variety Jubilee
23 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The storyline in Variety Jubilee is corny to say the least and some of the acting leaves an awful lot to be desired but the shortcomings of this film are more than made up by the cast list of music hall stars. Charles Coborn "trod the boards" for over 60 years and was over 90 years old when appearing in the film, whilst the rendition of The Can Can by "the ladies of the ballet" is surely one of the finest captured on celluloid. George Robey, Slim Rhyder The Ganjou Brothers & Juanita etc are now but distant memories but in their day were true stars and Variety Jubilee offers a rare view of some wonderful talent. As far as I am aware very few people are aware of what, in view of its music hall content is, in my opinion a minor classic of a film although thanks to the wonder of the internet I was able to obtain a copy of a DVD originally video recorded from UK TV many years ago. It is well worth tracking down a copy as the likes of these marvellous entertainers are gone for ever. Forget the acting and wallow in 90 minutes of nostalgia.
