Product Description

First time ever on DVD Digitally Restored and Re-mastered. Kit (Ellis Irving) and Joe Swan (Reginald Purdell) are variety stars at the turn of the century. Kits son is killed in the First World War but the sons son carries on the family tradition by reviving the music hall and joining the RAF musical. This domestic melodrama chronicles three generations of a family of music-hall owners. When WWII erupts, the popularity of the music halls decline, and the Burns and Swann music hall falls into disrepair. Their business falls further into decline when Kit and Evelyn's son, Kit Jr., is killed. Unable to revive their theatre, Kit and Evelyn die in poverty and Swann ends up as the theatre doorman. Fortunately, Kit senior's grandson, also named Kit, decides to save and run the hall. He does so until he joins the RAF to fight in WWII. IMDB: This musical is a last hurrah and showcase for the great English music hall veterans including Charles Coborn singing his famous Two Lovely Black Eyes and The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo , singer Marie Lloyd as herself, comedian, George Robey, the acrobats, Ganjou Brothers & Juanita, and sand dancers Wilson, Keppel and Betty.

This film is a classic from the early 1940's and provides a visual record of many Music Hall Stars which includes such greats as George Robey, Charles Coburn, Ella Retford, Betty Warren, Marie Lloyd Jn as her mother, and many other great artists of the era paying tribute to music hall stars the were no longer alive. The DVD has been beautifully digitalised and is of excellent quality, both picture and sound.

I've heard of this film for years and relish the opportunity to see it. It's a feast for the enthusiast who can wallow in sentimentality of days gone by.
