Storyline

Marjory Clark wins a competition in her Midland town and finds herself in a Festival of Britain procession as Lady Godiva - though not in the buff. This leads by way of a suspect beauty competition to the show-business world of London. But it could be a slippery slope for simple home-town Marge. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Comic Misfire
23 December 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is difficult to believe that with the talent both behind and in front of the camera that this film could be such a misfire.It clearly attempts to be a satire on beauty competitions and the film industry,but misses just about every target that it aims at.As one other reviewer has mentioned she is reminiscent of Ruby Keeler ie talentless.She is just totally out of her depth.Dennis Price is the nominal star of this film,but echoing is spiraling down career he only appears for about 20 minutes.He just had to appear in what ever he was offered he was desperately short of money.However there are 2 standout female performances both which show star potential.Diana Dors is great as usual and playing a sister of Proudfoot is the great Kay Kendall.just a couple of years away from stardom in Genevieve.
