Product Description

For over three hours, we celebrate the glorious Variety artists and singers from the golden age of radio, music hall and theatre revues. Meticulously filmed by Pathé newsreels for the delight of the British cinema going public, these performers gave much needed light relief in the tense months leading up to the Second World War. 'Variety Acts and Turns of the Pre-War Years' features the full range of period Variety entertainers; balancing acts, jugglers, dance bands, jazz bands, organists, circus acts, strongmen, comedians, musicians, dancers and singers including The Peters Sisters, Leslie Henson, The Hillbillies, Douglas Byng, Issy Bonn, Lorenzi, The Four Aces, Sydney Burchall, Richard Goolden (Mr Penny), Eric Woodburn, Billie Hale, Ronald Frankau and many, many more. By the end of the 1930s, Pathé had refined its way of filming variety acts by cutting into the performances filmed locations and atmospheric panaromas. Come 1939 war with Germany was looming, but, in the words of variety - the show must go on!" - and it did! So, ladies and gentlemen, sit back and enjoy this definitive record of pre-war variety and light entertainment - the singers, comedians and speciality acts that enthralled a generation.

Nostalgia personified if you're of a certain generation: an education if you're not. A rare opportunity to re-live great performances from the past.
