A chance to see the Crystal Palace on film.
5 April 2014 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am inserting reviews for all films I've seen that lack one... S.Holloway stars as a member of a northern brass band who is down in London to play in a competition in the Crystal Palace, there are only a couple of interesting points, one is a chance to see the Crystal Palace, that gave name to a part of London the year before it burnt to the ground, the other is a now shockingly racist line contained in a song about Sweeney Todd, noted in the current BBFC PG cert for the DVD release as 'Contains a historical use of racist language', overall it's OK. For anyone interested it's contained in the 4 film set 'The Ealing Studios Rarities Collection Volume 7' like most films in the collection, it was made at the studio, but is not an 'Ealing Films' production.
