Extremely camp screen version of Sandy Wilson's musical about an assistant stage manager of a small-time theatrical company (Twiggy) who is forced to understudy for the leading lady at a matinee performance at which an illustrious Hollywood director (Cecil B DeThrill) is in the audience. Disturbingly charming, rarely seen 1920s period piece from the brilliant British filmmaker Russell (Tommy).
