Trivia

A Catalan surprise - this picture was shot in Barcelona and its surroundings. Laurentia's royal palace is in fact the Palau Reial de Pedralbes and you can see in some scenes the statue of Queen Isabel II which is in front of the Palau showing to the people his son King-to-be Alfonso XII in her arms; the big fountain at the palace gardens is in fact farther on, located at the Ciutadella park, and the exterior of the "cathedral" where the royal wedding takes place is in reality Sitges' coastal village humble church of Sant Bartomeu i Santa Tecla.

Crazy Credits

Opening card: "Guarded by immemorial mountain peaks, gaunt and forbidding, the stronghold of the storm, Laurentia is a country of strange contrasts - the tenderness of romance, the venom of intrigue - and here, beneath these bastions of rock, we lay our story." See more »

I Rhapsodize.
12 July 2017 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I think I make a fair assumption in saying that one needs to be passionate about the music of Ivor Novello to fully appreciate "King's Rhapsody" on film.I am just that and happy to take his works in any shape or form.In 1949 when Novello's last 'operetta' was first presented on the London stage,it was an immediate success,despite it's quaint,old fashioned theme.Sadly,by the time it reached the screen in the mid-1950's,there was only a limited audience for it outside England. Errol Flynn may have retained a certain box- office appeal at this time but here,his ineffable charm is clearly a thing of the past.He looks dissipated,to say the least and seems to be sleepwalking his way through most of the proceedings. Now,let's move on to the ladies.Anna Neagle is as enchanting as ever and imbues her role with grace and charm.She sings two songs,nicely but there is no dancing for her this time.That is left to the other female lead,Patrice Wymore who dances very well and sings sweetly (the dream scene is a bit odd though). It's not easy to involve oneself in the drama but never mind,there is always Novello's glorious music;the mainstay of the piece. I was delighted to find this film on DVD and the quality is quite satisfactory.
