Old British film from 1943 on the Talking Pictures channel called "Variety Jubilee" in the schedule for early Wednesday morning at 4 am. Story is of 3 generations of music hall owners spanning the early 1900s to the early 1940s,

 

Film is only of interest to anyone interested in music hall acts and songs from that time as the film has numerous acts and songs. Besides songs which are associated with wars (such as "It's a Long Way to Tipperary" and "'Till the Boys come Home" there are songs such as "If you were the only girl in the world", "I do like to be beside the seaside" and "After the Ball" which some of the lyrics and music are quite well known.

 

One of the acts is "Wilson Keppel & Betty", the famous sand dancers who dressed up in psuedo-Egyptian outfits. I don't know which routine(s) they did for the film so might not include their much imitated one.

Moonie, I'm back from that collecting in the dry - sky very dark now so rain expected . I've been doing the annual accounts for the client for several years - it's not a registered charity but the accounts and my work are very similar to that for a charity - no tax work involved as the income isn't taxable as such.

That’s good El

The new Tesco clubcard advert is likely to cause outrage from anyone who has seen the film Casablanca. It's taken the famous farewell scene between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman and has replaced their dialogue.

This is the famous scene:

Tesco should be condemned.

 

 

El, I’ve just seen that ad on the television. It’s good but shouldn’t be allowed
