Review

Our Score
Following the success of Victoria the Great starring his wife Anna Neagle, producer/director Herbert Wilcox continued the saga up to and including Victoria's death. Peopled with a cast of dignified upper-crust actors such as C Aubrey Smith and Felix Aylmer, the film has Neagle presiding regally, and sometimes touchingly, over events personal, political and public - among them her wedding to Albert (Anton Walbrook), the opening of the Great Exhibition, Albert's death and the Diamond Jubilee. Old-fashioned, four-square, and very nice.

Summary

A lavish sequel to the celebrated film biography Victoria the Great, this sumptuous historical epic once again recounts the life and reign of Queen Victoria - this time in glorious Technicolor. Given unprecedented access to the royal palaces, director Herbert Wilcox re-casts Anna Neagle as Victoria and Anton Walbrook as Prince Albert in a film which again met with worldwide acclaim.
