  • This Movie Is a Blast!

    If you go in for musicals and silly humor, you're in for a treat with this. Good tunes and great performers. I particularly want to take note of three of the supporting young women who do so much more than support -- they dazzle with their talents and very distinct personalities: Antonia Ellis, Georgina Hale, and Barbara Windsor. Christopher Gable also shines. Thank you TCM for showing this full-length version; it's long, but it flows more sensibly than the American edit.

    It's a total re-imagining of the original Sandy Wilson musical. It is far from "innocent' and much more "cynical". But Ken Russell's new concept is spirited and lively. It also gives us some very impressive production numbers. Twiggy and Christopher Gable are engaging "fantasy lovers". This film is such a swell time at the movies.

    I love this movie. It deftly vacillates between being a satire and an homage of Golden-age Hollywood musicals. The production numbers are breathtaking (as are the details like hair, makeup and costumes). And the cast are stellar particularly Georgina Hale as "Fay" ("It's Never Too Late To Fall In Love"). And let's not forget Twiggy. Superb! The one-liners, quips and sight gags are also used to their fullest potential. Which makes "The Boyfriend" a thoroughly entertaining fare. In case there are any doubts, "Yes. I love it!"

  • My friends hate me.

    Visually stunning. I like this movie so much I make my friends watch it. But to them it's like a hammer hitting them on the head for the two hours of in-your-face singing, dancing, and art deco. Perfect casting, especially Twiggy and Tommy Tune. You rarely see this film offered, so get your Charleston on!
