In 1932, in addition to their regular tours, they supplied the background music for the movie "Han , Hun og Hamlet"  (He, She and Hamlet) featuring the famous comedy team of  "Fy & Bi", (Popular comedy team in silent movies), which became their first movie with sound. Throughout the movie Fy and Bi sang and played accordion, which was dubbed by Gellin & Borgstrøm.

Between 1930-40 Denmarks Radio had a music competition every year, the socalled "Lyttervalsen"- "The Waltz of the Listeners". The Danish listeners picked the winning waltz.

Finally "The Listener's Waltz" 1933 was picked. Wednesday evening the 4 final waltzes were played by Otto Lington's orchestra with the assistance of Accordion-virtuosos Gellin & Borgstrom, and the day after the votes came pouring in. The coverage this year was higher than ever before. It proved once again this year that listeners have a fondness for the old-style quick waltzes, and after the votes were counted, it appeared that there was an overwhelming majority for waltz no. 3, which was posted by the young pianist Borge Bøhling-Pedersen.
