Dir. Morgan White | Canada, 2016 | 91min | appropriate 12+
A rare glimpse into the world of the seedy and fabulously obsessive search to own a pair of the true Ruby Slippers and the surprisingly shady, backstabbing world of Hollywood memorabilia collecting. Some of our great lost queer heritage is also unearthed in the form of Kent Warner (a Garland superfan too), whose keen eye for the fabulous and important saved all manner of costumes and props from the bin during a period of upheaval and auction by the great Hollywood studios. And a nostalgic glimpse of Debbie Reynolds, desperate to collect these treasures for her ill-fated museum. Eccentric and thrilling, The Slippers is a glittering treasure trove of Hollywood whodunit.

THE HARVEY GIRLS
Dir. George Sidney | USA, 1946 | 99min | BBFC U
Judy Garland is a mail-order bride whose good girl gang of genteel waitresses face off with the gloriously sequinned bodice-wearing Angela Lansbury’s bad girls of the saloon in an all-singing, all-dancing showdown for a frontier town wrestling to maintain its wild west ways. Expect swooning hearts, frilly petticoats, sweaty cowboys, a gender-subverting blacksmith and Judy at her mid-career finest in this Technocolor western-musical-comedy-drama-romance extravaganza.
