The Old Team Paired up Again
22 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I agree with the general comments of all mentioned above, especially Marilyn Henry's witty remarks.Yes, Anna Neagle was too old for the leading lady part, most noticeable in her close-ups but remember her husband Herbert Wilcox was the producer.The "in" jokes are there again where the leading lady & man joke that their stage characters remind them of their real selves, (see "Spring in Park Lane" (1948) a companion to this film).

On the plus side it is in glorious colour and the fact the plot is set in a late 1940s fashionable Mayfair lady's clothes salon gives the director an opportunity to show fashion models literally stepping out of the pages of contemporary fashion journals.That scene reminded me of "Cover Girl" (1945) with Rita Hayworth & Gene Kelly, when glamorous models likewise appear and step out of American fashion magazines.Nice to see a young Thora Hird playing a secretary and Tom Walls playing a policeman.Its a harmless bit of froth and in my opinion only worth 5/10.The actors in "Spring in Park Lane" were effectively reprising their roles, especially the slow motion dancing of Dame Anna with Michael Wilding

Likewise Peter Graves and Michael Wilding's cousin "once removed" are reprising their almost identical role in "Spring in Park Lane".
