Often adapting much-loved hits of the music hall as well as serving as vehicles for the era's composers, performers and band leaders, musicals in the 1930's showcased home-grown talent alongside some of Hollywood's most bankable stars.

This ongoing, multi-volume collection makes available a wealth of rare gems from the very earliest days of the British talkies, many of which have remained unseen since their original release; each film is presented uncut, in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

A zesty musical comedy starring Stanley Lupino as an irresponisble reporter who finds himself tangling with both crooks and millionaires.
