Anna Neagle less than regal
31 October 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The main point of interest of this film is that it was the first film made at Pinewood.It was also to mark a sea change in Anna Neagles career.After this film she went on to pay Quuen Victoria in 2 films and Nurse Edith Cavell.On the strength of her performance in this film one can see why.Her singing is off key and when she is dancing she makes Ruby Keeler look like Eleanor Powell.In any event the screenplay is a direct piece of larceny as it is "My Fair lady" by any other name.Neagle starts with the most ridiculous cockney accent and ends up with what in those days would be called a Mayfair accent.Quite frankly the convoluted plot is so ridiculous that you wonder if they were serious when they made this film.It is strictly for fans of Anna Neagle before she became a royal.
