French Dressing

Cinema's enfant terrible Ken Russell's debut feature is an exuberant farce that has become a cult classic since its theatrical release fifty years ago. Featuring early lead roles for James Booth and Roy Kinnear, and with script input from Johnny Speight, this much sought-after comedy gem is made available here for the first time, in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements.

Gormleigh-on-Sea is the sort of typical, boring English seaside resort where the landladies lock away the jam at 5 o'clock and there's little do except carve your initials on the bus shelters. Then, deck-chair attendant Jim has a brain-wave - persuading the Mayor to host a film festival and import a French movie siren. It's not long before the mayors of Gormleigh's rival towns look on with jealous eyes and scheming minds...
