Piccadilly Incident

Anna Neagle stars in this light-hearted comedy about a castaway with a secret.

UK 1946
Dir Herbert Wilcox
With Anna Neagle, Michael Wilding, Coral Browne, Frances Mercer

35mm
Certificate PG

Diana (Neagle) and Captain Pearson (Wilding) meet during a blackout in London’s (then) notorious Piccadilly. A light-hearted comedy seems to be evolving, but fate – and Florence Tranter’s story – takes us into melodramatic Douglas Sirk territory. Diana’s journey touches on illegitimacy, a common issue by 1945, and includes years washed up on a desert island; it may stretch incredulity, but Neagle remains charmingly convincing.
