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!
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.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
