Critic Reviews for The Wicked Lady
Amid the romantic highwaymen, secret passages and poisoned elderberry wine, the bogus sentiments expressed by the actors are a perfect match for the bogus look of their hair pieces.
Producers claim that this story is 'set in the days of Charles II'. Sets, costumes and a comely bunch of femmes bear out the claim. But the period atmosphere is not convincing.
Former critic and screenwriter Arliss [is] the unfortunate director having to contend with the recalcitrant mechanics of Lime Grove studio ruralism.
Filled with silly twists and overwrought melodrama, it has a distinctive sensibility, two charismatic anti-heroes who invest their roles with personality and energy, and a stylized, unreal flamboyance that keeps them lively.
This lushly costumed drama is surprisingly boring, but Mason stands out with his swagger and gusto while the rest of the cast members are sadly unconvincing.
Audience Reviews for The Wicked Lady
The title of this melodramatic tale of a noblewoman turned highwayman says it all...it sounds like a Mills & Boon novel, and plays like one too. James Mason is rather good as her rakish lover though.
