This is the first time I've seen or heard of this movie. I'm just tuned into the middle of the film. It's less of a drama and really more of a musical in a mildly romantic sense. The scenery is sumptuous with an atmosphere of high fashion, moreso since the setting involves royalty, i.e. Errol Flynn is to become king so it's lavish in every way. Anna Neagle sings well; I'd never heard her sing before (at least I hope it is her own voice). It is regrettable that Flynn only had a few more years left in his brief life, brief by our standards today. It's refreshing to see a film I haven't seen before. If you like pleasant songs, gentle romance and pageantry, this is one you ought to see when you can. It's almost like a European Broadway musical!
