British Vintage Music Films

Other movies with Danceband MD's

this page first published by John Wright, 18 Sept 1997
last update 27 Oct

On this page I am listing other British films which have an MD or music writer associated with dance band music of the 78rpm era, which are not yet listed on my danceband and entertainers pages, because songs in soundtrack are not confirmed. I'd like to confirm if a band is heard AND seen in these films and what songs or music is played. Also the names of any singers, entertainers or instumentalists.

If you can fill in any of the gaps or if you know of websites or books dealing with old movies that might have useful information then please e-mail me.

Note: other films with a Dance Band MD are included in the Danceband films and Entertainers' films
