Double Bill

Say It With Flowers

This 1934 real art productio was made at Twickenham Fil Studios. Directed by John Baxter this was one of his earliest works. He was already showing his deft hand at understanding the working people, the sequence along a row of market traders was years ahead of its time. The story revolves around market flower sellers Kate Bishop (Mary Clare) and husband Joe Bishop (Ben Field). The couple fall on hard times and fellow traders decide to put on a benefit concert for them. Stars of the concert are Charles Coborn, (The Man That Broke The Bank Of Monte Carlo), Florrie Forde (Has Anyone Seen Kelly) and Marie Kendall, Grandmother of Kay Kendall. Enjoy this wonderfull slice of history picture and sound of excellent quality.

Song Of The Road

Another classic from John Baxter who directed this 1937 UK film production. It stars Bransby Williams as old Bill, a horse and cart driver and Tod Slaughter, a fairground medicine man. The council whom Bill works for are turning to motor transport to replace the horse and cart. Bill, unable to accept the change, buys his horse and sets off to seek work in the country. He encounters many folk that he helps along the way. A lovely gentle film with some unique shots of the horse and rider through London. A great social document of a bygone age, with picture and sound of excellent quality following extensive restoration.
