Mrs. Henderson Presents - Stephen Frears interview

Posted on: December 8, 2005 | Views: 20 | Comment

The director discusses his film: its visual style, his instruction to the DP, actor security on set, Hollywood history, Judi Dench, casting a first-time actor, and his interest in working-class themes.

This is the story of Laura Henderson, one of the most prominent and eccentric figures in pre-WWII London society and the founder of the historic Windmill Theater, a performance hall known for, among other things, its all-nude revues.
