It's the beginning of the talking movie era. At the Theatre Royal in Portsmouth, a second-rate theatre troupe run by 'Mr. Max' Mandeville (Max Adrian, in one of his last screen appearances) is in its run of a musical called 'The Boy Friend'. For their shows, there are usually more people performing on stage than there are in the audience. On this day, the lead actress, Rita Monroe (Glenda Jackson) has just injured her ankle, leaving the assistant stage manager, a shy waif of a woman named Polly Browne (Twiggy) to assume the lead female role just before her first scheduled entrance. The timing is terrible as in the audience for this matinée is famed Hollywood movie director Cecil B. De Thrill (Vladex Sheybal), who is scouting for an idea for his new all singing, all dancing movie musical. So there is much pressure on Polly not just to perform adequately, but to save the production to ensure it pleases De Thrill. While many of the actors end up playing solely to De Thrill - especially featured chorus members Maisie (Antonia Ellis) and Tommy (Tommy Tune) who try to outdo one another on stage - Polly only wants not to embarrass herself, and have real life mirror the on-stage story as she is in love with the lead actor, Tony Brockhurst, played by Christopher Gable. A wonderfully camp, over-the-top production in which director Ken Russell also pays homage to Busby Berkeley-style musicals of the thirties with several huge production numbers! Professionally produced on dvd, this is a video-to-dvd transfer and the picture quality is a very respectable 8/10 given that the original film was made in the seventies! As this hasn't been available on dvd in the UK before, this is your chance to own a feel-good musical (guaranteed to cheer up even the rainiest day!) at a bargain price! Comes with glossy artwork cover at a price which includes postage and packing too! Grab a bargain!!
