Miss Tulip Stays the Night + The Great Game

A delicious double dose of effervescent vintage comedy-drama starring quintessential British bombshell Diana Dors at her saucy best.

Miss Tulip Stays the Night Director: Leslie Arliss Laughter and thrills mingle in Miss Tulip Stays the Night as gorgeous Kate Dax (Dors) and her crime-writer husband, Andrew (Patrick Holt), investigate the murder of eccentric spinster Miss Tulip (Cicely Courtneidge) at a remote country cottage. With the help – or hindrance – of bumbling PC Feathers (deftly played by British comedy legend Jack Hulbert), will they ever crack their crazy case and finally figure out whodunit?

The Great Game Director: Maurice Elvey Goals and glamour go together in The Great Game, a high-scoring drama of football league corruption, shot on location at Griffin Park, a historic home of Brentford FC. With fine performances from James Hayter as Burnville United’s unscrupulous team chairman, Thora Hird as his long-suffering assistant, and Dors enjoying herself as man-eating secretary Lulu – not to mention the splendid eyeball-rolling turn from John Laurie – the final result is a nostalgic Saturday afternoon treat for movie buffs and football fans alike.
