George Formby - Fanlight Fanny




George Formby was everyone's favourite in the UK. During the 1930s decade he was the highest payed entertainer in Britain. He was famous for his humorous and sometimes saucy lyrics that he sang while playing his ukulele.

Fanlight Fanny was one of my all time favourites and is about a die hard swinger in her sixties that is still trying to live her version of a glamorous lifestyle, while failing without realising it. Only those observing her do and that is just about everyone except poor old die hard Fanlight Fanny - the Saturday Nightclub Queen - Hoora!

As kids, we all loved George Formby films. They were usually comical and he would play a few songs along the way. He would like to say at the end, "Its turned out nice again."
