Rated U by the BBFC


Irreverent and controversial early costume drama starring Anna Neagle as the humble orange seller-turned-actress Nell Gwyn, who takes the fancy of King Charles II (Cedric Hardwicke) after he sees her performing at Drury Lane. Wild, sexually liberated and symbolic of the hedonistic mood that swept the country in the 17th century after years of Puritanical rule, Nell soon supplants the aristocratic Duchess of Portsmouth (Jeanne de Casalis) in the King's affections - and the scandalous romance that ensues remains a national legend.
