Throughout the 1930s Jessie Matthews was Britain's best-loved musical film star, her dynamism and gamine charm captivating 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 directors Victor Saville and (in a change from his normal fare) Alfred Hitchcock, actors Robert Young and Esmond Knight, as well as comedy star (and Matthews' husband) Sonnie Hale – the two films on this volume are presented as transfers from the original film elements, in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratios. It's love again! A young actress secretly seizes the chance to play the part of an imaginary socialite invented by a gossip columnist. The enigmatic beauty becomes famous, but the columnist is mystified when his fictional star appears in person! Waltzes from Viennna A pretty girl works in the bakery in which aspiring composer Johann Strauss is also forced to work by his father. Can she help him achieve his dreams despite his father's objections?
The American artist Kevin Jerome Everson has created a remarkable body of moving image work that co-exists within film and art exhibition contexts. With a sense of place and history, his films, shot primarily on 16mm, combine scripted and documentary moments with touches of formalism. The focus is on craft and duration, and the gestures and tasks caused by certain physical and socio-economic conditions in the lives, labour and leisure of working-class Black Americans and people of African descent. They suggest not only the relentlessness of everyday life but also reveal its inherent beauty. This selection of four features and 17 short films, together with an 'image booklet' of photographs, has been specifically curated by the artist. Second Run are proud to present the first comprehensive collection to be released on Blu-ray of Everson's award-winning and critically acclaimed films.

Stranded with her at a remote inn and seriously hampered by injury, Darcy very quickly loses the battle to conquer his feelings, but can he win the war to make himself better understood without the ability to speak?Thus begins an intense journey to love and understanding that is at times harrowing, sometimes hilarious and at all times heart-warming. 1.

Matthews weaves suspense and mystery within an absorbing love story. Readers will be hard put to set this one down before the end. (Library Journal, starred review) An Uncommon Beauty....Hidden away in rural Devonshire, Phyllida Satterthwaite has always been considered more odd than beautiful. But in London, her oddity has made her a sensation. Far worse, it’s caught the eye of the sinister Duke of Moreland - a notorious art collector obsessed with acquiring one-of-a-kind treasures. To escape the duke’s clutches, she’s going to need a little help. An Unlikely Hero....Captain Arthur Heywood’s days of heroism are long past. Grievously injured in the Peninsular War, he can no longer walk unaided, let alone shoot a pistol. What use can he possibly be to a damsel in distress? He has nothing left to offer except his good name. Can a marriage of convenience save Philly from the vengeful duke? Or will life with Arthur put her - and her heart - in more danger than ever? 1.
