Overview

A group of trailblazing female musicians try to take another shot at success in this musical comedy-drama produced for the premium cable network HBO. In the 1940s, the Blonde Bombshells were the finest all-female jazz band in the U.K., playing hot swing music that helped raise England's spirits during the dark days of WWII. Fifty years later, Elizabeth Judi Dench, one of the band's sax players, is trying to decide what to do with herself after the death of her husband. Pulling her axe out of mothballs, Elizabeth starts playing again, and after meeting Patrick Ian Holm, the group's former manager and drummer-in-drag, they decide to put the group back together for a reunion tour. But they soon discover that putting the band back on the road after over fifty years is no easy task. The Last of the Blonde Bombshells also stars Leslie Caron, Olympia Dukakis, and jazz vocalist Cleo Laine.

    Great Music and Actors with an amusing story line. Just plain FUN!!

    A movie you can watch over and over again, for the flashbacks or for the front story. Both will bring plenty of smiles and some laugh out loud moments while not forgetting the backdrop realism of the WW II period.
