There are many, perhaps all of Formby's films available in the UK.
Don't forget, if you are in the US/Canada you need a DVD player capable of handling R2/PAL recordings.
Best wishes, Thomas.

>> 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.

Pity teacher Jesterartaud, who lauds Formby's praises can't spell or
type properly and spell Will Hay's name correctly!
