All stars would go on to far better films
5 November 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was made just before Wilcox and Neagle really hit their stride with a series of films set in a sort of never never land otherwise called Mayfair.Rex Harrison was shortly to go off to Hollywood for a contract which would end in personal humiliation for him and his wife Lilli Palmer when his mistress,Carol Landis,committed suicide because he would not divorce Palmer and marry her.Sexy Rexy as he was known has a powerful screen presence even today.So the basic failing of this slow and often tedious film is that Neagle falls for the lugubrious Jagger instead of Harrison.Then the ending is milked for all its worth,a real 4 hanky job.however it just doesn't work today.Also the idea that Harrison could get out of camp to meet Neagle the day night before D Day is laughable.
