    Jessie Matthews Revue (The): Volume 1




    Throughout the 1930s Jessie Matthews was Britain's best-loved musical film star, her dynamism and gamine charm beguiling audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. With a string of box-office hits spotlighting her unique talent and charisma, it's easy to see how she became so popular – and why she remains so to this day.

    Showcasing some of the era's finest cinema talent – including director Victor Saville, writer Sidney Gilliat, and comedy star (and Matthews' husband) Sonnie Hale – the two films on this volume are presented as transfers from the original film elements, in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratios.
