There was a time when Formby's films turned up regularly on late night CBC, a 
long time ago. I saw "It's In the Air" in a small screening room that I found 
because a chalkboard sign advertised it on College Street in Toronto.

> It starts with George working in a record factory.A crooner sings "Leaning On A Lampost" Crosby style at a recording session.The recording is made on a wax disc which George manages to break.He secretly makes a replacement in his inimitable style.So the comedy arises from the fact that the studio bosses do not know that the change has been made. this film also has a satirical swipe at the jerrybuilding of houses in the 1930s suburban housebuilding boom in London.It is an entertaining film but one which few people have seen for many years.
