Nothing Like A Dame offers a unique perspective on 70 years of theatre, film and television blending archive with testimony from four of our greatest living actresses.
The film weaves rare archive footage, with much loved examples of favourite films and TV shows and personal film and photos belonging to the Dames bringing to life informal memories and anecdotes. The archive embeds their reminiscences in our collective shared memories and allows the viewer to feel like a friend sitting at the same table as the Dames.
Part of the the film’s strength rests on the energy that the archive brings to make us the viewer feel that despite being in their 80s we are in the presence of four very youthful spirits.
