Details

A Diana Dors double bill, presented as part of the BFI's Adelphi collection.

Laughter and thrills abound in Miss Tulip Stays the Night as gorgeous Kate Dax (Diana 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? Directed by Leslie Arliss.

Goals and glamour go together in The Great Game, a high-scoring drama of football league corruption, shot on location at Griffin Park, the 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 Diana Dors enjoying herself as man-eating secretary Lulu – not to mention a splendid eyeball-rolling turn from John Laurie – the final result is a nostalgic Saturday afternoon treat for movie buffs and football fans alike. Directed by Maurice Elvey
