THE BOY FRIEND
1971 (GB) 125mins. Russflix

Producer and Director: Ken Russell

Synopsis: Musical. Based around Sandy Wilson's musical stageplay of the same title, Russell's extravagant production storms between delightful tackiness and exuberant fantasy in pastiche of 1920's stage musical (after Wilson) and Busby Berkeley's film musicals of the 30s. Twiggy plays Polly Browne, nervous stage manager of a production of "The Boy Friend" who is obliged to take the place of Rita, leading lady, (Glenda Jackson) who sprained her ankle. Russell's film follows the performance, which is a distaste onstage and off, as the cast compete for the attention of De Thrill, a Hollywood director in the audience. Simultaneously we follow the romantic entanglement of Polly and Tony, played by the young, blue-eyed blonde Christopher Gable.
