British Comedies of the 1930s: Volume 8 DVD


The ebullient comedy films of the 1930s brought escape and laughter to millions of British cinemagoers, enabling veteran stars of the music-hall and theatre to reach out to a wider audience making household names of performers like Leslie Fuller, Hal Gordon, Bobby Howes, Ernest Lotinga and Gene Gerrard.Although comedy would prove to be the decade's most successful film genre, many of these classic early talkies have remained unseen since their original release. From boisterous knockabout humour to polished adaptations of popular stage farces, this ongoing collection showcases a wealth of rare features, each presented uncut, in a brand-new transfer from the best available elements in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.THE CAMELS ARE COMING (1934)A British squadron leader is tasked with uncovering a desert dope-smuggling operation, but unwittingly becomes a Sheik's drugs mule!Black and White / 77 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / EnglishME AND MARLBOROUGH (1935)1710: a feisty young woman disguises herself as a man, joins the Duke of Marlborough's army and sets off to try to rescue her press-ganged husband.Black and White / 80 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / English
