Storyline

King Charles II first meets Nell Gwyn after seeing her do a turn at Drury Lane. They soon become close, the King preferring her feisty irreverent company to that of the aristocratic French Duchess of Portsmouth. Nell becomes his most loyal subject, while ever-ready to take the Duchess down a peg. But the actress can never hope to be fully accepted by the King's circle despite his constant attentions.

Surprisingly sophisticated historical yarn
10 April 2002 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This vehicle for the talents (such as they were) of the adorable young Anna Neagle is surprisingly specific about orange-seller Nell Gwynn's rise to power as the favorite mistress of Charles II. Although the bawdy laugh and swagger affected by pure-as-snow Anna portraying little Nell is somewhat unconvincing, the film is fast moving and loads of fun. No Hollywood moral ending here.
