CLASSICS FROM THE COHEN FILM COLLECTION
Double Feature! Vivien Leigh Centennial!
ST. MARTIN’S LANE / STORM IN A TEACUP

We celebrate the centennial of Vivien Leigh (November 5, 1913 - July 8, 1967) with two films from early in her career.

ST. MARTIN’S LANE
1938, Cohen Film, 83 min, UK, Dir: Tim Whelan

Street entertainer Charles Staggers (Charles Laughton) has eyes for beautiful pickpocket Libby (Vivien Leigh) and convinces her to work the crowd as a busker instead of a thief. But Charles realizes that the posh Harley Prentiss (Rex Harrison) can do a lot more for Libby than he can. Featuring three outstanding performances, this clever comedy was released in the U.S. as SIDEWALKS OF LONDON – after GONE WITH THE WIND had made Leigh a star.


STORM IN A TEACUP
1937, Cohen Film, 87 min, UK, Dir: Ian Dalrymple, Victor Saville

This Alexander Korda production has much of the charm the Ealing comedies would display 20 years later. After Scottish provost Cecil Parker condemns an old woman’s pet dog, reporter Rex Harrison (in his first leading role) pens an article that puts in hot water. Furious, the politician sues – but that’s not enough to stop his daughter (Vivien Leigh) from falling for the writer.
