Palais de Danse + intro by Lucie Dutton
UK 1929. Dir Maurice Elvey. With Mabel Poulton, John Longden, Robin Irvine, Hilda Moore. 90min. 35mm. With live piano accompaniment.
Cinderella is at the wrong kind of Ball in this romance of a night-watchman’s daughter who takes a job as ‘No.16’ in a sleazy London dance hall. Maurice Elvey is at his best in this lively drama with nice Mabel Poulton and naughty Chilli Bouchier. Contributions of note are script by John Longden who plays the cad, a young David Lean helping with camera and the great Andrew Mazzei on décor.
This screening will be introduced by Lucie Dutton, recently awarded her PhD on the early career of Britain’s most prolific film director Maurice Elvey.
