More Jessie Matthews on DVD please!
on 21 June 2009
How nice to have THERE GOES THE BRIDE on DVD. It's my first chance to see it and it is charming and quite well-paced and Jessie shows more of her comedic gifts than in several other films. (Others that I have seen but would love to own - HEAD OVER HEALS, IT'S LOVE AGAIN and the fine GANGWAY - should all be given the DVD treatment. Why not?) The technical aspects of this film are not perfect. The transfer is a bit muddy and dim at times - this IS simply a transfer though - not a restoration - and we are all lucky to be able to see the film at all. There are far worse transfers of Jessie Matthews material - especially the 2-CD JESSIE MATTHEWS: A CENTENARY CELEBRATION (an abysmal collection of music that, in my opinion, is so poorly transferred that it should be avoided AT ALL COSTS!)
