Richard talks with Uncle Joshua about Somerset Maugham's story, 'The Moon and Sixpence', loosely based on Paul Gauguin's life. Richard mentions the film based on the novel, but mistakenly identifies Tyrone Power as the star. See more »
This is a lighthearted, very British romance with a fine cast. The story revolves around a merchant's daughter, Anna Neagle as Judy, who falls in love with their new servant, Richard, played by Michael Wilding, who is actually a nobleman fallen on hard times temporarily. As dancing partners they are sublime in the gentle romantic interludes which create lovely highlights to the movie. Don't miss it. The script moves along well with witty dialogue and interesting interaction among the characters. Excellent British fare with lots of charm.
