Directed by Peter Brook, starring Jocelyn Barnard ably supported by Laurence Olivier, Hugh Griffith, Kenneth Williams and Dorothy Tutin. Presented as a tribute to our own Jocelyn Barnard, who worked tirelessly at the REX for a quarter of a century and sadly passed away at Christmas. From a theatrical background, this is her only film performance, from 1953, (as Jocelyn James) playing Molly Brazen. See if you recognise her. Come and enjoy this musical 18th century romp about the randy highwayman Mac-Heath – and remember Jocelyn with us.
