TROTTIE TRUE 35MM aka The Gay Lady + Intro by BFI Curator Josephine Botting at BFI Southbank (06 JUL 18:00).

  • “To celebrate the centenary of her birth, we’re screening Jean Kent’s most eye-catching role, and her personal favourite, from a gorgeous 35mm print made by the BFI National Archive. Kent brings vivacity and good-natured humour to this lavish Technicolor salute to the golden age of music hall, with no expense spared on the sumptuous recreation of Edwardian England. Trottie’s progression from working-class girl to stage celebrity echoes Kent’s own journey to stardom, which took her from Windmill Girl at the age of 14 to one of Gainsborough’s leading ladies. This film earned her the tag ‘Britain’s Betty Grable’, and she undoubtedly injected some welcome glamour and zest into the bleak post-war years.” (BFI)
