Eclipse 1945: The Wicked Lady


Nice hats.

And doilies.

She’s so wicked!

This is a lot of fun. It’s totally over the top and delighting in its own absurdeties. This was released just after WWII, and was the highest-grossing movie in the UK of the year, and I can totally see why.

(They had to reshoot scenes like this for the US release because of the excessive Margaret Lockwood boobage on display.)

George Harrison!?

It’s a bitch-off!

I feel like I should love this, but I just don’t. The performances are great, and the plot is a lot of fun, but I’m not really feeling it.

It might just be me.

The Wicked Lady. Leslie Arliss. 1945.
