a long forgotten biopic
30 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Herbert Wilcox and his wife Anna Neagle made a number of these type of bio pics.They tended to be quite stodgy affairs,rather like moving tableaux.This is certainly one of the problems of this film.It is based on a stage play and very little has been done to open out the film.The brief scenes of the charge of the light brigade are clearly stock shots probably provided by another producer.The film lasts around 100 minutes and it does seem rather wordy and overlong.It manages to introduce a very lackluster and chaste romance with Michael Wilding.The fact that the director and star were now well into middle age and they now lacked the vivacious that marked the beginning of their partnership.This is a long forgotten film and it probably deserves to be.
