E J Fancey productions made these 2 films at Merton Park studios and not seen for many a long year Renown have brought both to DVD for the first time. Donald Peers & Ronald Shiner co star in The Balloon Goes Up but it is the antics of the comedy duo that save the day. The second film Up with the Lark is the reissued version not the full 83 minutes. I believe some musical numbers were cut at this later date. Again the film is amusing and the co star is Anthony Hulme. Photography on both is by Stephen Dade. This is a slice of wartime nostalgia.
