The Jessie Matthews Revue - Volume Two
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 in a string of box-office hits. Showcasing her unique talent and captivating charm, it is 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's husband) Sonnie Hale - the two films in this volume are presented as transfers from the original film elements, in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratios.
It's Love Again (1936)
A young actress secretly seizes the opportunity to play the part of an imaginary socialite invented by a gossip columnist. The enigmatic beauty becomes a celebrity, but the columnist is mystified when his fictional star appears in person!
Waltzes From Vienna (1934)
A pretty girl works in the bakery in which an aspiring composer is also forced to work by his father. Can she help him achieve his dreams despite his father's objections?
Includes the comedy It's Love Again and musical Strauss biopic, Waltzes From Vienna.
