Fails To Repeat success of Nell Gwynn
7 January 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Anna Neagle plays Peg an Irish singer who is persuaded by her friend Michael(Jack Hawkins) to travel from Dublin to travel to London ,in 1733,to find their fortunes and marry.However Michael is quite feckless and finds other rich women to make love to.Peg manages to get into the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane and gets to meet the producer Mr Rich(Hay Petrie)who casts her in a small part in a show.The main star is David Garrick(Cedric Hardwicke) who champions her cause.eventually she becomes one of the top stars.Michael sees her on stage and tries to force his affections on her,which she rejects.In a pub later on,for some reason Neagle is dressed like a man.She sees Michael making love to another woman and snorts her derision.As a result a duel ensues.Neagle is not hurt in the sword fight but faints.Thinking her wounded Garrick takes her to a doctor who diagnoses a serious heart condition.He warns her that she must not act again.however she ignores the advice and dies on stage.This film,scripted by Miles Malleson is clearly trying to trade on the success of Nell Gwynn but fails miserably to do so.There is no great chemistry between Neagle and Hardwicke which of course is a highlight of Nell Gwynn.The film is padded out with extracts from plays and Shakespeare.Neagle yet again uses that excruciating excuse for an Irish accent.In all sad to say it is rather a yawn.
