Curtain Up (2017 Remaster) DVD


Curtain Up is a 1952 British film directed by Ralph Smart, written by Jack Davies and Philip King. In an English provincial town, a second-rate repertory company assemble at the theatre on Monday morning to rehearse the following week's play, a melodrama titled Tarnished Gold. Harry (Robert Morley), their irascible Director, is highly critical of the play, which has been foisted on him by the owners of the Company and is unenthusiastic about its prospects. The cast, a mixture of wanabee-film stars and has-beens, are equally unenthusiastic and little progress is made.... Just as matters seemingly cannot get worse, the authoress of the play, Catherine Beckwith (Rutherford), appears and insists on 'sitting at the feet' of the Director. [show more]

Margaret Rutherford and Robert Morley star in this British comedy. The Drossmouth repertory company are having enough trouble preparing for their production of the poorly-written melodrama 'Tarnished Gold' when the play's indomitable author Catherine Beckwith (Rutherford) arrives. She soon locks horns with the play's producer Harry Blacker (Morley), a confrontation which quickly escalates into out-and-out war.
