Our Miss Fred

Bob Kellett (1972)

A Certificate


Our Score
Danny La Rue, Britain's most popular female impersonator during the 1970s, seems terribly constricted in his one major film, an old-fashioned wartime comedy written by distinguished playwright Hugh Leonard. Soldier La Rue is playing a woman on stage in France when the Germans invade. He escapes, wearing his costume, and, somewhat implausibly, remains in drag as he evades the enemy for the rest of the film. Some of the daft situations may raise a smile and the photography is quite pretty, which is more than can be said for La Rue, already somewhat matronly.
