Movie Info

The world of provincial British theatre is given a gentle going over in Curtain Up. Short of funds, a small-town repertory troupe is forced to bow to the whims of wealthy Catherine (Margaret Rutherford), the aunt of the theatre's manager. When Catherine writes a perfectly dreadful play, the actors are compelled to stage the "masterpiece," with hilarious results. Matching Margaret Rutherford scowl for scowl and double-take for double-take is Robert Morley as the troupe's pompous director. The delectable Kay Kendall provides a few sublime moments as the velvet-voiced leading lady. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
