Elstree Calling - 1930 - Gordon Begg, Teddy Brown, Cicely Courtneidge, Will Fyffe $26.99US
DVD

A series of 19 musical and comedy "vaudeville" sketches presented in the form of a live broadcast hosted by Tommy Handley (as himself). There are two "running gags" which connect the sketches. In one, an actor wants to perform Shakespeare, but he is continually denied air-time. The other gag has an inventor trying to view the broadcast on television. Four of the sketches are in color (in shades of yellow and brown only). - IMDB

Elstree Calling is a 1930 film directed by Andre Charlot, Jack Hulbert, Paul Murray, and Alfred Hitchcock. It is a lavish musical revue and was Britain's answer to the Hollywood revues which has been produced by the major studios in the United States. The revue has a slim storyline about it being a television broadcast. The film consists of 19 comedy and music vignettes linked by running jokes of an aspiring Shakespearean actor and technical problems with a viewer's TV set.
