Directed by Ken Russell | 1971

With Twiggy, Christopher Gable, Tommy Tune

“A beautiful vehicle for Twiggy, a clever young performer. It is delightful entertainment, novel and engaging.”
—Variety

Renegade auteur Ken Russell’s delirious homage to the musicals of the 1920s and 30s is an excursion into dazzling excess. Mod icon Twiggy is a demure assistant in a two-bit theatrical troupe forced to fill in for the leading lady, as dramas unfold onstage, backstage, and in the characters’ imaginations. The ecstatically over-the-top production numbers play like Busby Berkeley fantasias for the post-psychedelic age.
