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 actor-director (and Matthews’ husband) Sonnie Hale, director Victor Saville and art director Alfred Junge – the two films on this volume are presented as transfers from the original film elements, in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratios.
THE GOOD COMPANIONS (1933)
Jessie shares the bill with John Gielgud and Edmund Gwenn in JB Priestley’s famous tale of a failing concert party and the three 'angels' who come together by chance to rescue it.
