From playful romantic comedies to variety extravaganzas, the pre-war British musical films offered audiences a source of much-needed escapism throughout the decade haunted by the Great Depression and the growing menace of war. Often adapting much-loved hits of the music hall as well as serving as vehicles for the era's composers, performers and band leaders, they showcased home-grown talent alongside some of Hollywood's most bankable stars.This ongoing, multi-volume collection makes available a wealth of rare gems from the very earliest days of the British talkies, many of which have remained unseen since their original release; each film is presented uncut, in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.DANCE BAND (1935)Life gets complicated for bandleader Buddy when he falls for his greatest rival the leader of an all-girl dance band!Black and White / 72 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / EnglishKATHLEEN MAVOURNEEN (1937)A hugely popular, much-adapted comedy in which a Liverpool lass visits family in rural Ireland and finds she has several rivals for her affections.Black and White / 74 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / EnglishHOLD MY HAND (1938)Eddie Marston is wealthy and kind, but his affairs are rapidly descending into chaos.
