Storyline

It's the 1930's. American sisters Eugenia Crocker and Nesta Pett are extremely wealthy and extremely competitive, with each disliking the other. Their latest quest of oneupsmanship has Nesta trying to marry off her niece by marriage, poetess turned crime novelist Ann Chester, to Lord Reginald Wisbeach, so that there will royalty in the family. This move is against Ann's wishes as she doesn't love the stuffy Lord. Meanwhile, Eugenia, now living in London, is trying to buy a royal title. Eugenia's current quest and others like it are always hindered by the notoriety of her stepson, James Crocker - better known as Piccadilly Jim, for the newspaper gossip column he used to write and the job from which he got fired - who is known as a womanizer, brawler, gambler and drunk. Jim is thinking about becoming more respectable when he meets and falls in love at first sight with a beautiful American visiting London. That woman is Ann, who hates what she knows of Jim, not only for that notoriety, ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Eugenia Crocker: Really Bingley what's gotten into you today? I don't want any of your odd actor-like behavior in front of the duchess. Remember if 600 members of the royal family died she'd be queen.

Piccadilly Grim
15 April 2007 | by (That Northern Area, England) – See all my reviews

This film has no redeeming features whatsoever. I knew what I was in for when I saw that it was made in the Isle of Man. What is it about films made there over the past ten years or so? Why are they all so lousy? Think Blackball. Think The Dark. You look at all of the cast and crew and you think - Why did it end up so bad? Decent actors who look like they can't wait to get the money and sod off on the next ferry. The direction is woeful yet John McKay has done OK TV work. The editing is some of the worst I have seen, yet you look at David Freeman's track record and you go fair enough, he must know his stuff. The script is by Oscar winning toff Julian Fellows, surely he must know his Wodehouse back to front? It looks like a sure fire winner. I warn you, its all true...no wit, no style and no fun.
