I Lived With You (1933) - a comedy starring Ivor Novello, based on a play that he wrote - is the third film in this second season of Kino Quickies.

Novello plays a homeless Russian prince who meets Gladys Wallis (Ursula Jeans) in the maze at Hampton Court and moves in with her family. His presence in this normal family home has chaotic effects on the whole household. Also starring Ida Lupino as Glad's sister, Ada and Eliot Makeham& Minnie Rayner as her parents, the film was directed by the most prolific director in UK film history, Maurice Elvey.

Our guest for the Q&A is the author John Snelson, who has written extensively about the performing arts and has a new book coming out soon about the history of British musicals.

I Lived With You has been released on DVD by Renown Films. Currently, however, all the copies available online are really expensive, so hopeully it will turn up on Talking Pictures TV and TPTV Encore soon.
