MGM Musicals Come To BFI Southbank
The Boyfriend will be shown in London's British Film Institute (BFI).  It is part of a celebration of "The wonderful world of the MGM Musical" in Nov and Dec 2011.

"Many musicals will screen in newly restored prints and there will be some very special guests and events to introduce well loved films from an age that has never been forgotten...

As a centrepiece of this season, BFI Distribution will release two of the most dazzling titles – An American in Paris (1952) and Meet Me in St Louis (1944) - nationwide and each will screen in an Extended Run at BFI Southbank. ..

The 50th anniversary release of West Side Story (1961), screening in an Extended Run at BFI Southbank from 16 September, will launch the MGM Musicals season and will also herald an ongoing tribute to the musical genre from the BFI, throughout the next three years. This instalment will conclude with a very rare outing for Ken Russell’s The Boy Friend (1971), a comic pastiche of the roaring 1920s starring Twiggy."
