Shooting Stars – 7:30pm

Tuesday 24 May 2016 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Shooting Stars

Stars: Annette Benson, Brian Aherne, Donald Calthrop, Wally Patch

Winsome damsel-in-distress on screen and diva off screen, Mae (Benson) has tired of square-jawed co-star and husband Julian (Aherne), preferring debonair Andy (Calthrop), known to the public as a Chaplinesque clown. At first a hilarious, biting movie industry satire, Shooting Stars takes a darker turn when Mae schemes to escape her personal and professional crisis.

This recently restored gem is surely one of the best-directed films in early British cinema – Asquith crafted wonderful visual humour, lush romance, urgent action and a truly poignant final scene with exquisite framing and lighting.

Not so much a Review, more a discussion of late 20s film at the London Film Festival: ‘review’
