Directed by Charles Crichton and starring Petula Clark, Diana Dors & Natasha Parry, from Ealing Studios, Dance Hall, the 1950s version of Strictly Come Dancing! has been digitally re-mastered and is available on DVD from 21st January 2013, courtesy of StudioCanal.

From the story by Alexander Mackendrick (Ladykillers, The Man in the White Suit, Whisky Galore!) and from the director of The Lavender Hill Mob and The Titfield Thunderbolt, Dance Hall is a romantic melodrama centred round the life and loves of four working-class women who spend their Saturday nights at the Chiswick Palais dancing to the music of Ted Heath's Big Band.

Natasha Parry (Romeo & Juliet, Oh, What A Lovely War!) stars as Eve, whose marriage to Phil (Donald Houston, The Longest Day, Room at the Top) is imperilled when she takes a different partner for an upcoming dance contest. Her reasoning is that Phil is a lousy dancer, but she loves him all the same; Phil, however, is the jealous type, who doesn't quite see things Eve's way.

Petula Clark (Goodbye Mr Chips, Finian's Rainbow) plays Georgie, whose ambition is to become a dance champion with her partner, Peter (Douglas Barr, Hue and Cry). Among the other familiar faces floating by in Dance Hall are Bonar Colleano, Diana Dors, Sydney Tafler, Gladys Henson, Dandy Nichols and Jane Hylton.

The first ever DVD release of this lost gem from Ealing Studios features a brand new Making Of featurette.
