It's Love Again

"As Mrs. Smythe-Smythe, mysterious big game huntress from somewhere in India, struggling dancer Jessie Matthews is aided by two clever boys who dream up the disguise for her break into London Society and Theatre. It's ever-so-40ish. Witty dialogue by Lesser Samuels speeds past, delivered by masters of the game, and the film looks as good as anything you care to compare it with in American musicals. The staging of the dance numbers by Buddy Bradley; the choreography, score, arrangement and conducting, sets, costumes and lighting are so stylish you wonder how come English technicians ever had a bad reputation in those years. The ravishing Miss Matthews was once described as 'a tall cool drink of water to a man dying of thirst.'" --National Film Theatre, London
