Elstree Calling, DVD


Tommy Handley compères this collection of musical and comedy sketches featuring popular vaudeville entertainers including Cicely Courtneidge, Anna May Wong and John Longden.

The premise of the piece is that Handley is acting as the presenter of a live broadcast. 19 sketches are put forth in all, including a recurring joke about an actor whose attempts to make it into a Shakespeare play are continually thwarted.

A young Alfred Hitchcock was involved in the project and directed some of the sketch sequences.
