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.

Happy (1934)
A young musician invents an anti-theft device for cars, but works as a jazz conductor while waiting for his invention to be successful.
Invitation to the Waltz (1935)
London, 1804: as the threat of Napoleonic invasion looms ever closer, a German duke and potential ally of England falls for a pretty ballerina...
Glamorous Night (1937)
Based on Ivor Novello's hit stage play: an opera singer and her gypsy friends try to rescue their king from the clutches of a would-be dictator.
Let's Make a Night of It (1937)
Unbeknown to each other, a husband and wife acquire separate nightclubs in the same London street; however, both clubs are on the brink of bankruptcy...
