where these real bands?
15 October 2013 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Dance bands and their leaders were the pop icons of the thirties.There are a considerable number of films that featured bands.There is one musical which has a finale with no less than 6 name bands.So I am wondering,as a dance band enthusiast,whether any of the bands featured in this film were actual bands.There are some quite catchy numbers featured,the best of which is "The Valperiso".The story as such features Rogers and Clyde hating each other at first and then well you can guess the rest.There is a dance band contest which features a sort of clapometer similar to the one used by Hughie Greene on Opportunity Knocks.A very enjoyable and entertaining film.
