Synopsis:
A series of now-legendary stage comedies from the 1920's and '30's, the 'Aldwych Farces' broke theatre box-office records and made the transition to celluloid with a run of hit films - making stars of Tom Walls, Ralph Lynn and Robertson Hare. Most were penned by leading comic playwright Ben Travers and peopled by a regular cast of silly-ass aristocrats, battleaxe wives and put-upon husbands; nimble wordplay and finely crafted buffoonery were their hallmarks and the public loved them. Though only ten adaptations were made on film, the influence of these enduringly popular films was great and can be seen in some of the key British comedies from the first half of the 20th century.
This ongoing range will include not only the 'Aldwych Farces' themselves but those films that they influenced.

Fighting Stock (1935)
Feuding, intrigue and blackmail put a brigadier-general's fishing holiday on hold.
Foreign Affaires (1935)
An ageing aristocrat schemes to secure his dwindling finances by any means - fair or foul!
