According to a biography of star Dana Andrews, he was very upset that after carefully cultivating a British accent for his role as the artist, his voice was dubbed by a British man whose identity the studio refused to reveal and who remains a mystery to this day. This was done in an effort to give to British audiences a more accurate accent for someone who would have lived in the mews. However, Andrews, critics, and audiences alike felt it was an inferior and obvious job of dubbing. See more »
A charming film, set in Victorian London, features gorgeous Maureen O'Hara as the daughter of a upper-class businessman, fascinated by the mews behind the family home (and which was forbidden territory to this gently-reared young woman); and Dana Andrews in a dual role...that of a fortune-seeking art teacher turned drunkard, and a decent young man fallen on hard times who proves to be Maureen's eventual savior. Wonderful performances by Wilfred Hyde-White as O'Hara's father, and Dame Sybil Thornedyke as a horrid old woman who blackmails O'Hara's character when she ends up living in those same forbidden mews. There's even a delightful dose of jolly good humor toward the end. One of my all-time favorite movies.
