Reviews

Directed by renowned producer/director Herbert Wilcox at the height of his career, this British post-war film drama spans four generations to tell the never-changing story of the soldier husband who returns home expecting to find everything just as he left it. Starring screen icon Anna Neagle, Elizabeth of Ladymead is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Ladymead is the gracious Georgian mansion in which Elizabeth lives while her husband is fighting abroad. Here, we encounter four incarnations of the central character, all portrayed with typical accomplishment by Neagle, as she anxiously awaits her husband's return: 'Beth' of the Crimean War, 'Elizabeth' of the Boer War, 'Betty' of World War I, and 'Liz' of World War II. Her husband in each period returns expecting to find his wife, and everything else, exactly as he had left them. But the 'Elizabeth' he left behind has been changed irrevocably by her experiences…

Wonderful Film from beginning to end ! I have finally found a few movies that my wife totally enjoys, and this was one of the selections. It was a romantic presentation of a woman who has endured the hardships of seperation caused by war and the return of her husband. Both had changed significantly and the adjustments that were necessary for the continuation of a successful marriage became obvious. They were cleverly portrayed in the film with a series of flashback stories of earlier generations of family members who had endured similar trials caused by extended separations due to war. This was timely as millions of couples have had to experience similiar circumstances throughout history in all countries. The film had great relevance even though it was a different era and different circumstances. I totally enjoyed the story and presentation.

Good old stiff upper lip stuff, starring Anna Neagle and produced by her husband, Herbert Wilcox. Lovely colour too. Not to everyone's taste, but I love this old stuff, which has historical value, with its clipped, upper class accents and rituals spanning several generations. Good value.

Although there are plenty of inferior British films, at its best, British film making is unbeatable, a fact helped by there being so many outstanding British actors. This now quite ancient film is a case in point. I can recall, when I was a small boy, how the adults would talk about someone called Annan Eagle and how disappointed I was when I discovered that this great actress (as we called female actors in those days) was actually called Anna Neagle.

Having seen Elizabeth of Ladymead many years ago now, it was a pleasure to be able to watch it again on the DVD and hear the clipped upper class accents just as I can recall them from yesteryear. For me the strongest female character portrayed is the post Boer War wife and the weakest one the post First World War Nineteen Twenties Flapper type character the weakest. It's a tribute to Anna Neagle's acting abilities that she was able to portray each of the four wives to effectively and realistically with each of them giving the viewer a real feel of the period in question. 'I know/knew a woman just like that,' we can say as we watch.

All the other top quality actors were always going to have to play second fiddle to Anna Neagle, but they all seem happy to do so and play their parts convincingly well. I'm old enough to remember the tale end of Victorian brought up ladies and Edwardian ladies. I lived through World War 2 and also remember lots of stories told to me about the Great War 1914-15. I once also met an old man who had fought in the Boer War. Were people really like they are portrayed in this film? Yes they were. And the makers of this film with Anna Neagle and the support cast have got it all spot on. Great stuff!

This is a real treasure. The acting, setting and story are delightful and bring back lots of memories of the shining time in British Film Making.
