VARIETY ACTS AND TURNS OF THE LATE 1930s
Over three
hours of glorious Variety artists and singers from the golden age of radio,
music hall and theatre as seen performing their acts for the cinema newsreels
of the day.

‘Variety Acts And Turns Of The Late 1930s’ features the full array of Variety
entertainments; balancing acts, jugglers, dance and jazz bands, organists,
strongmen, comedians, musicians, dancers – modern and ballet, roller-skaters
and singers galore. Artistes include Robb Wilton, Robinson Cleaver, Cyril
Fletcher, Arthur Askey, Sir Henry Wood, tenor Bernard Clifton, Joe Loss, George
Formby, Norman Evans, Bob and Alf Pearson, Ronald Frankau, Gracie Fields and
many, many more.

By the end of
the 1930s, Pathé had refined its way of filming performers by mixing in
evocative filmed locations such as London, Port Talbot, Smethwick, Chorley,
Ireland, Scotland and even The Queen Mary.
Pathé also
filmed a baker, carpenter and a taxi driver who all became professional
singers, a railwayman who became an actor and miners who trained to become a
team of high-wire walkers!
So, Ladies and
Gentlemen, sit back and enjoy this time capsule celebration of a long lost classic
era of British Variety!
