30s equivalent of MTV
19 May 2009 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Essentially this is a variety review as there is no plot to speak of.Many well known turns of the 30s get their time and are spotted at almost the same stage they would be featured in a Variety programme.On this basis and the time allotted it has to be acknowledged that the incomparable Arthur Lucan in his "Old Mother riley" sketch is top of the bill featured with his "daughter" but actually his wife,Kitty McShane in an incomparable act.There is that immortal drunk Jimmy james,the lugubrious Albert Whelan and heading up the rear to give the film a bit of class is Debroy Somers and his Orchestra.For those interested in Music Hall or the 30s this film is a priceless record.
