Elsa Lanchester  CD

Elsa Lanchester
Cockney London - (VAR63)

Elsa Lanchester was an English Actress who had a successful career as a dancer as well as performing songs at her night club "The Cave of Harmony." It was here that she revived several Victorian temperance ballads which are included on this CD. In the 1930s she moved to Hollywood where she appeared in the film The Bride of Frankenstein amongst others. She later produced a touring act featuring Old Music Hall songs as well as more modern songs written in the same genre. These also feature on this CD, in many cases introduced by Elsa herself.
