Trivia

Closing credits: And to all the Amy Johnson's of today, who have fought and won the battle of the straw hat - who have driven through centuries of convention - who have abandoned the slogan 'Safety First' in their fight for freedom 'from fear-from want-from persecution'- we dedicate this film.

Good old Anna
6 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Anna Neagle gives a sterling performance in this otherwise dreary and pedestrian biopic of flying ace Amy Johnson - she even manages a very credible northern accent for a lady with such natural RP delivery. Anna was always slighted as an actress of limited range, promoted to major stardom by her besotted husband Herbert Wilcox, however of the two personalities, Wilcox was really the lesser talent. His direction of this - and every Wilcox/Neagle film - is uninspiring and flat. No wonder Anna rarely came across brilliantly on the screen, under her husband's leaden workmanship. How sad that the man who did pick her from nowhere and promote her to stardom was a director of such limited skill: had she been spotted by a Hitchcock, or a Korda, for example, who knows how much more Miss Neagle might have brought to her roles.
