Released in January, 1937, Landslide is a British black and white movie set in a remote Welsh settlement.
There’s an English theatre group in the area and it prompts a few lines such as:
“They’re funny people, the English.”
Once most of the locals have left the building, there’s a landslide and everyone is trapped inside.
A series of murders are committed before the culprit is discovered, the simple-minded sounds effect man.
In the end, as they’re making their way free, the murderer supports the falling debris before being buried himself.
I wouldn’t say it was a comedy but it certainly wasn’t a ‘heavy’ film.
It stars Jimmy Hanley and Dinah Sheridan, who were married in real life from 1942-1952.
