Throughout the 1930s Jessie Matthews was Britain's best-loved musical film star, her dynamism and gamine charm beguiling audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. With a string of box-office hits spotlighting her unique talent and charisma, it's easy to see how she became so popular – and why she remains so to this day. Showcasing some of the era's finest cinema talent – including director Victor Saville, writer Sidney Gilliat, and comedy star (and Matthews' husband) Sonnie Hale – the two films on this volume are presented as transfers from the original film elements, in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratios. FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH Six very different people are involved in a fatal omnibus accident; which two were killed on this unluckiest of days is eventually revealed in a compelling blend of humour and pathos.

Liz Janssen's marriage was over long before she filed for divorce. There was no way her soon-to-be ex-husband committed suicide because of her. Yet that is what her teenage son Will believes. Others in the small West Virginia town share this thinking. Others who are disciples of a homicidal Satanic cult her husband was part of. The disciples want vengeance for the death of one of their own and will use Liz's troubled, grief-stricken son as an instrument for their revenge. To save herself and Will, Liz must stop them - and she must do so without Doug finding out. Doug McBride is the new town sheriff, the man Liz has fallen in love with, and the man she cannot trust. 1.

She was his second wife - to die. Coming off a failed marriage, a beautiful woman named Toni joined an online dating site hoping to find true and lasting love. Harold Henthorn seemed like her dream come true, a handsome man who said he had “[A] heart for others”. Only weeks after meeting, they were wed. But Toni's family began noticing Harold's dark side, especially his controlling nature, which Toni didn't seem to mind. Until she met her end at the bottom of a ravine. Was he a grieving husband - or a black widower? Harold's tearful story of his wife's hiking “accident” just didn't hold up with Toni's family or the police.
