According to a biography of star Dana Andrews, he was very upset that after carefully cultivating the appropriate English accent for his role as the artist, his voice was then "looped" by an English actor (for the British prints only; in the prints for the U.S. and foreign markets outside the British Commonwealth Andrews's voice is his own) whose identity the studio refused to reveal, and who remains a mystery to this day. This was done in an effort to give to British audiences a more accurate accent for someone who would have lived in the mews. However, Andrews, critics, and audiences alike felt it was an inferior performance and obvious job of dubbing. See more »

Wouldn't you throw everything away for Dana Andrews?
I was a bit predisposed to like this movie, since I have a big crush on Dana Andrews. If you actively dislike him, you should stick to Jamaica Inn or Sentimental Journey instead. In The Forbidden Street, he plays a wildly attractive artist who comes from the wrong side of the tracks but captures proper Maureen O'Hara's heart anyway. See why I liked it?
Maureen's family disapproves of Dana, and not just because he's poor. He literally lives in the slums, which are visible from Maureen's window. She knows how terrible "the forbidden street" is, but since it's Dana Andrews, she throws everything away and moves to the slums after they're married. As she soon finds out, having a handsome hubby doesn't make everything perfect. Her neighbors hate her, she's estranged from her parents, Dana treats her badly, and they're running out of money. What's a wife to do?
Well, you'll have to watch the movie to find out what happens-and it's extremely exciting! While I wish there were a bit more twists and turns to the plot, overall it's an entertaining movie. The ending will definitely make you think. I'm still talking about my interpretation days later!
