Formby on film
This cannot properly be described as a film in the accepted sense. The producers merely strung together a pot-pourri of songs and some scenes from the first two films and released it around the time that the star was experiencing his first big ATP success with "No Limit". Brendan Ryan “It must be of great interest to cinema audiences to hear once again the songs that proved to be the stepping stones to stardom of a great Artist. So here is what may be termed "A Cavalcade of Song" the numbers that raised to fame the one and only GEORGE FORMBY - The Idol Of The People” Those are the words that introduce this 'compilation' of the Formby songs from his first two films. Whilst everybody refers to this film as 'George Formby Cavalcade' the actual screen title states, "The Song That Made A Star". John E. Blakeley realised what a crowd-puller George was turning into and released this film for one last shake at the Formby money tree that George was rapidly turning in to. Peter Pollard
