Film information

Story: Collection of British musicals from the 1930s. In 'Facing the Music' (1933), directed by Harry Hughes, Stanley Lupino stars as Jack who has fallen head over heels in love with Nina (Nancy Burne). In his pursuit of her, Jack discovers that she is the niece of an opera singer looking to bolster her fame. When Jack proposes a fake jewel robbery to Nina during one of her aunt's shows she agrees, but when the jewels really do go missing Jack must recover them before the end of the performance. Thomas Bentley directs 'Sleepless Nights' (1932) in which Lupino stars as Guy Raynor, a reporter in Nice who pretends to be the wealthy husband of Marjorie Drew (Polly Walker) to stop her from running away with a crook. Paul Merzbach directs 'A Star Fell from Heaven' (1936) in which a musical film star suddenly loses his voice. An aspiring singer dubs over his performances and becomes unexpectedly famous in the process. In 'The Student's Romance' (1935), directed by Otto Kanturek, young student Max (Patric Knowles) and Princess Helene (Grete Natzler) fall in love, but must overcome the barrier of her royal status if they are to be together.
