Watch Calling the Tune - Alternative Versions.
By a curious coincidence, two of the only three major films based on
the British recording industry were made at Ealing within a year of
each other. One was the nowadays rarely seen George Formby vehicle
'Feather your Nest', the other the subject of this review, 'Calling the
Tune'. As you might expect, the Formby movie uses gramophone recording
as the basis for broad though effective comedy whilst 'Calling the
Tune' could not be more different. Here the approach is that of
melodrama, the story outlining the rivalry between two recording firms
around the time of the onset of electrical recording in the late 1920s.
The narrative is well-paced and plausible, and acted with some verve
not only by stalwarts of the profession such as Lewis Casson (one of
his best screen appearances) but also by newcomers such as Clifford
Evans, later to achieve huge box-office success in 'While I Live', or
Donald Wolfit, best seen in 'Room at the Top' and the inspiration for
Albert Finney's hugely entertaining Sir in 'The Dresser' But the main
claim of 'Calling the Tune' to posterity's interest is the line-up of
notables who attend the recording studio to cut discs. For aficionados
of classical music, the sight of Sir Henry Wood conducting his Queen's
Hall orchestra is a genuine delight. For lovers of music hall, there's
George Robey performing one of his patter routines. And, perhaps
weirdly, Sir Cedric Hardwicke steps forward to declaim some Shakespeare
in very much the oratorical style he employs in 'Things to Come' shot
at Denham in the same year. As an historical record this movie is
absolutely fascinating, but as entertainment it works pretty well too,
especially at its exciting climax.
