Perry Werner Posted July 15, 2012 Share Posted July 15, 2012 Howdy: I finally got around to watching the movie "The Princess Comes Across" starring Fred MacMurray, Carol Lombard, William Frawley and etc., last evening on a local PBS station. A definite must see for any concertina player. You'll roar, you'll cry, you'll laugh your sides off because of all of the concertina related material included. The film will be appreciated by this group right up to the last line in the film. Well worth a 75 minute inspiring investment of your precious time. A major work on the long list of major motion pictures which feature our lovely instrument. Seriously though folks. I really enjoyed this silly film, but it is concertina loaded and definitely worth a watch. For those of you with a keen ear and eye, watch for the inconsistencies related to the music and instruments. There are multiple copies of the VHS available on Amazon.com for pennies and they are worth every one of them. Dosen't appear that this has been released on DVD, but who cares? Have fun, Perry Werner Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
