Synopsis:
From playful romantic comedies to variety extravaganzas, the pre-war British musical films offered audiences a source of much-needed escapism throughout the decade haunted by the Great Depression and the growing menace of war. Often adapting much-loved hits of the music hall as well as serving as vehicles for the era's composers, performers and band leaders, they showcased home-grown talent alongside some of Hollywood's most bankable stars.

Blossom Time (1934)
World-renowned tenor Richard Tauber features in a dramatisation of the life of Schubert, focusing on the composer's unrequited love for a dance master's daughter.
Over the Garden Wall (1934)
An aunt objects to the romance between her niece and a neighbour's nephew, and steps in to put an end to the love affair - with comic consequences...
Mister Cinders (1934)
The Cinderella story is reversed in this light-hearted adaptation, with Cinders a young man who eventually wins the 'princess' - in this case, an oil millionaire's daughter!
Everything is Rhythm (1936)
Based on the spectacular rise of bandleader and vaudevillian Harry Roy, this is the comic tale of a Ruritanian princess who elopes with a dance-band leader.
