Climbing High

1938 British comedy film.

The Jessie Matthews Revue - Volume Five

The Jessie Matthews Revue - Volume Five

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, 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 Michael Redgrave, Alastair Sim, director Carol Reed, actor/director (and Matthews' husband) Sonnie Hale and art director Alfred Junge - the two films in this set are presented as transfers from the original film elements, in their original theatrical aspect ratios.

On the trail of a jewel thief, a dashing detective meets a young reporter masquerading as a film star's maid - and soon believes she is none other than the elusive felon!

Climbing High
Carol Reed directs a madcap comedy revolving around a young West End model, the wealthy young playboy who loves her - and his mercenary would-be fiancée!

Includes the comedy Climbing High.
