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 and charisma, 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 director Victor Saville, writer Sidney Gilliat, and comedy star (and Matthews' husband) Sonnie Hale – the two films on this volume are presented as transfers from the original film elements, in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratios.

FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH
Six very different people are involved in a fatal omnibus accident; which two were killed on this unluckiest of days is eventually revealed in a compelling blend of humour and pathos. Black and White / 83 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English

FIRST A GIRL
A messenger girl and would-be entertainer's big break arrives when she stands in for a drag artiste stricken with laryngitis... and finds life can get very complicated for a girl impersonating a boy impersonating a girl! Black and White / 88 mins / 1.33:1 / Mono / English
