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.
