 shooting-stars-01Shooting Stars  (Dir. Anthony Asquith, 1927) A handsome cowboy gazes adoringly at his ‘gal’ perched winsomely in a tree. No, it’s not the Wild West, it’s Cricklewood, a British movie studio in the 1920s. This is not the only illusion to be swiftly shattered. A slapstick comedy is being shot on the other stage and spoiled star Mae Feather is more interested in what’s happening on the other set (particularly in its lead) than in her husband and co-star. Acknowledged to be the debut of rising talent Anthony Asquith (Underground, A Cottage on Dartmoor), it weaves together on and off screen stories with energy, flair and considerable bravado, affording rare, behind-the-scene glimpses. Find out more at  IMDb   Presented as part of the Borderlines Film Festival   Accompanied by a newly commissioned recorded score for 12-piece ensemble by composer, conductor, arranger and saxophonist John Altman.  Screen Mobile, Hay on Wye  Link
