Jessie Matthews Revue (The): Volume 2
Throughout the 1930s Jessie Matthews was Britain's best-loved musical film star, her dynamism and gamine charm captivating audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. With a string of box-office hits spotlighting her unique talent, it's easy to see how she became so popular – and why she remains so to this day.
Showcasing some the era's finest cinema talent – including directors Victor Saville and (in a change from his normal fare) Alfred Hitchcock, actors Robert Young and Esmond Knight, as well as 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.
