Trivia

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 »

9 August 2004 | by (Plainfield, CT. USA) – See all my reviews

Dana Andrews first character in the movie was as 'Henry Lambert' not 'Herbert Lambert' and he didn't fall out a window - he fell down the stairs. I watched this movie today on Fox and I liked it - I didn't think that I would at first. This movie was also titled: "Affairs of Adelaide" and "The Forbidden Street". The story was a from a book by Margery Sharp entitled: "Britannia Mews". She also wrote the books from which the animated features "The Rescuers" (1977) and "The Rescuers Down Under" (1990) were drawn. I would buy this movie (The Forbidden Street/Britannia Mews/Affairs of Adelaide) if it were to come out on DVD. This is the first time I have commented on a movie in such a way.
