The Boy Friend (1971) DVD9
The British director Ken Russell once commented, "I never want to do a violent, disturbing film like The Devils (1971) again. That's why I did The Boy Friend (1971). It's pure escapism and fun."
Marked by Russell's imaginative approach to storytelling, The Boy Friend is a tribute to old Hollywood musicals that moves between reality and elaborate fantasies as the film unfolds.

Polly Brown (Twiggy, fashion icon of the 1960s), the stage manager at the theater, is called to come on board as the understudy for injured leading lady Rita (Glenda Jackson) when a big time Hollywood director named Cecil B. DeThrill (Vladek Sheybal) shows up in the audience. He’s there looking for people to appear in his latest big budgeted major studio musical movie.
When Rita learns of DeThrill’s presence, however, she decides she’s going to reclaim the role as her own as she does not want Polly to get the exposure she so desperately craves.
