Throughout the 1930's Jessie Matthews was Britain's best-loved musical film star, her dynamism and gamine charm captivating audiences on both sides of the Atlantic in a string of box-office hits. Showcasing her unique talent and captivating charm, it is easy to see how she became so popular - and why she remains so to this day.
