Film Description

The definitive record of pre-war variety and light entertainment, featuring the singers, comedians and speciality acts that enthralled a generation. 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.

By the end of the 1930s, Pathé had refined its way of filming variety acts by cutting filmed locations and atmospheric panaromas into the performances.'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.
