The Jessie Matthews Revue
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 of 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.
