Valuable record of variety acts
4 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Ignore the wafer thin story and enjoy what is an enjoyable record of music hall acts.There is Billie Carlisle who with her partner Mindy were part of the original crazy week at the London Palladium which metamorphosis into the Crazy Gang.Claude Dampier was an early success in radio with his silly ads act.Clapham and Dwyer were big on the BBC,but watching them now they are virtually incomprehensible.They certainly aren't funny.The Mills Brothers had an act which would last well into the era of television.Nat Gonella was one of the top British jazz trumpeted of the thirties.I had the good fortune to see him perform in a music hall rescue in Jersey in the 1970s.So yes the production may be pretty basic but no more so than say many British films of the seventies and eighties.
