Odeon of Death: The Grime Singer
The Odeon of Death takes a look at the week’s events through the medium of cinema.
The Grime Singer (1927)
Michael Gove plays the titular artist whose blackface routine has them stampeding in the aisles. Hits include (Up the) Swanee (with the Tories), Brother, Can You Spare a Dime (No), and We’ve Had Enough of Experts, Sonny Boy.
