British Comedies of the 1930s Volume 6
The ebullient comedy films of the 1930s brought escape and laughter to millions of British cinemagoers, enabling veteran stars of the music-hall and theatre to reach out to a wider audience making household names of performers like Leslie Fuller, Hal Gordon, Bobby Howes, Ernest Lotinga and Gene Gerrard.

The Black Hand Gang (1930)
Wee Georgie Wood stars with his long-term stage partner, music-hall artiste Dolly Harmer, in this very early British talkie comedy.

Old Spanish Customers (1932)
Directed by Lupino Lane (The Love Parade) and featuring the ever-popular pairing of Leslie Fuller (Boys Will Be Girls) and Hal Gordon (The Amazing Adventure), this riotous comedy charts the misadventures of Bill Smithers – a henpecked husband who goes on holiday to Spain but is forced to take the bull by the horns when he's mistaken for a famous toreador!
