Movie Reviews

A great disappointment
British viewer | UK | 08/15/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is an illustrated lecture on the history of Music Hall, but, sadly, almost entirely lacking the illustrations. There are dozens of surviving film clips of Musical Hall artists, but almost none of them are included here. There are a few brief moments of Gus Elen, Harry Champion, and the wonderful Lily Morris, and of later variety performers (Tommy Trinder, George Formby, Gracie Fields) but most of the DVD is devoted to two elderly gentlemen reminiscing about how wonderful it all was. The producers should withdraw this, and re-issue it with many of the surviving film clips included: as it is, it gives an unfortunate impression of having been made on the cheap. As Gus Elen would have said "It's a great big shame"."
