Well Grandma probably read more Jane cartoons than I've had hot dinners! Jane was a favourite with our troops during World War II and was once decribed by Churchill as "Britain's secret Weapon!" Anyway enough of the historical stuff, this film is as saucy as is got in 1949. Jane is at her best, losing clothing and flashing those gorgeous stocking tops along the way, and Fritz, her dog - whilst not in the Pudsey league - puts on a good show. The film does show its age, but no doubt when it first came out ex servicemen were raving about it. It is - to be fair - a good film, but I found that I was almost watching it from an historical point of view, or rather as a collector would with the original cartoon strips. It is in effect a piece of memorabilia of World War II, or rather something that is reliant on WWII memories. And not a pair of tights in sight!!!!!
The Dennis Price film is just a typical late forties thriller, with a few good twists.
