I bought this movie because I love Granger and Simmons so much in 'Young Bess'. The quality of the VHS copy however is disappointing, I wonder if it due to repairing technical problems or lack of budget? Nevertheless, it is still worth the money because every once is a while, there will be a close-up of Granger or Simmons that is clear enough for an audience appreciation.
Granger and Simmons radiate their charms so effortlessly here because the characters they played are practically themselves--English socialites. The overall delightful result may look easy but it is however important that the script did not step into any wrong note.
