Window Into The Past
I have a special fondness for old films that provide a window into the way we once were. Such a film is "Dance Hall" which provides the perfect boy meets girl & on off romance, in fact in real life this was how perhaps most couples met and romances developed. This movie shows British life before TV took over, before the teenage revolution and rock and roll when the big bands ruled via the dance hall phenomenon. A pimplier era of full employment and terrific post war optimism.
Today hardly anyone can dance properly and dance halls are only in history books.
I had not seen this movie previously and found it joyously nostalgic and a wonderful time capsule to a era long long gone.
