Goofs

The red Jaguar E-TYPE or XKE that John drives Hattie home in when they first meet is a 2+2 model with a small rear bench seat and higher roof line. The tax disc in the window clearly shows that it expires in 1963. However the 2+2 model was only available from 1966. See more »

First class period drama
8 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There have been a few dramas recently based on the lives of the great British comedians of the 50's and 60's and Hattie is one of the best I've seen.

The acting is first rate, especially from the three principals. The period setting is well captured in the interior scenes - there are very few exterior shots, probably due to the budget. Another reviewer makes much of Hattie being a chubby lady but she was undoubtedly sexy and more so in real life than for the characters she played on screen. This is something else the film conveys very well.

The script is excellent - the real stand-out feature of the production. It's multi-layered and pays homage to the Carry On style of double entendre and elevates it to a much higher level. "Hattie" avoids being seedy but doesn't shy away from the details of this most unusual love story. Poor old John Le Mesurier! I'm off to form his appreciation society.
