RADIO PARADE OF 1935 (WILL HAY) | Out Now

A hilarious satire that pokes fun at corporations such as the BBC, Radio Parade of 1935 features Will Hay in uncharacteristically suave mode as William Carland, the Director-General of the National Broadcasting Group, a remote figure who has never seen his own studios. Contending with an ambitious young manager with plans to popularise the medium and designs on Carland's daughter (Helen Chandler), the film also features a villainous thatrical agent (Alfred Drayton) who bans his stars from appearing on a prestigious NBC show. However, the staff save the day, turning out to be natural talents as they mount their successful production. Featuring a number of lavish song and dance routines and memorable turns, the film also foretells the increasing dominance of television.
