| Absorbing romantic drama, grandly staged but plays at a snail's pace
A British historical drama; A story set in 1811 following the Napoleonic wars. The Prince Regent (the future King George IV of England) attempts to marry off his unruly daughter Princess Charlotte to Prince William of Orange, but it is to no avail because she has other ideas. This entertaining drama about star-crossed lovers is based on a play, The First Gentleman by Norman Ginsbury. It is attractively staged and lusciously costumed. It has humorous touches to give it levity above its stuffiness and busy sets but it moves at a slow pace and the plotline tends to drag. Cecil Parker is not ideally cast as George, but he carries off the humour and vain and excess effectively. Jean-Pierre Aumont as the German heads the cast and is charming casting his romantic spell. Tom Gill as the boorish Prince of Holland is outstanding. It culminates in true romance and startling tragedy.
