Blonde, beautiful and talented, Marion Davies was the first and funniest screwball comedienne. Starring in some of the best comedies ever made, she combined zany slapstick with exuberant mimicry to elevate tales of romance into the heights of hilarity. Loving and insightful, CAPTURED ON FILM: THE TRUE STORY OF MARION DAVIES deploys archival film clips, rare home videos and narration by Charlize Theron to explore the young Hollywood star's life and work. Bonus features for this edition include Davies' brilliant performance in the rarely seen classic Quality Street!
