Storyline

During the last half of the 19th century writer Richard Darrell saves Don Carlos from two robbers, and is entrusted by Don Carlos to take a valuable necklace to Spain. Richard leaves his fiancé, Oriana, and starts the trip. He meets Wycroft, a henchman for Sir Francis Castteldow, an aristocrat out to steal Oriana from Richard. The latter is assaulted, robbed and nearly killed and, as a result, loses his memory. He marries a gypsy girl, Rosal, while Oriana, thinking him dead marries the dastardly Sir Francis. Everybody will meet again. Complications will arise. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Quotes

Sir Francis Castleton: Pretty lips were made to be kissed - a truth that you have yet to learn.
Oriana Camperdene: And what am I to understand from that?
Sir Francis Castleton: A little healthy competition sometimes brings a woman up to scratch my dear. You like to get your own way and so far it's you who have called the tune, Oriana, and an infernally dismal one too, and I suggest that between us we pipe up something a little livelier...

Mad, bad and wonderful to know!
23 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Wild Gainsborough melodrama adapted from the purple pen of Lady Eleanor Smith with marvellous camp performances from Dennis Price and Robert Helpmann. There is also an athletic performance from Stewart Granger, while Anne Crawford follows in the distinguished footsteps of Phyllis Calvert & Patricia Roc by offering us the blandest of leading ladies. Jean Kent, however, is on hand as a spirited travelling woman. Kent can't sing and she can't dance, but she certainly is a lot of fun, even if she does lay on the sex appeal with a trowel. Almost sixty years on it is easy to see why this series of melodramas were so popular. If you can leave your critical faculties to one side, this is one to enjoy.
