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.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.SLEEPLESS NIGHTS (1932)A zesty musical comedy starring Stanley Lupino as an irresponsible reporter who finds himself tangling with both crooks and millionaires!Black and White / 69 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / EnglishTHE STUDENT'S ROMANCE (1935)In 1820s Heidelberg, the marriage of a student to a princess is nearly compromised when the landlady pays his debts from the kindness of her heart.Black and White / 75 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / EnglishI GIVE MY HEART (1935)The sensational rags-to-riches story of Jeanne Becu, better known as Madame du Barry the Parisian milliner who won the heart of a French king.Black and White / 88 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / EnglishA STAR FELL FROM HEAVEN (1936)Joseph Schmidt stars in the tale of a musical film star who loses his voice, and the opportunity it affords an aspiring young student looking for his big break.Black and White / 69 mins / 1.37:1 / Mono / English
