Elizabeth of Ladymead Film Poster


Herbert Wilcox directs this 1940s drama, based on the play by Frank Harvey, starring Anna Neagle as a woman dealing with the return of her husband from a variety of wars. Neagle plays the eponymous role of Elizabeth of Ladymead, a woman from a stately house who awaits the return of John Beresford (Hugh Williams) from World War II. As Elizabeth tries to deal with her husband's readjustment to civilian life, a series of vignettes see other versions of the central character (again played by Neagle) greeting husbands who have survived the Crimean War, the Boer War and World War II. Through a comparison of the various Elizabeths' experiences, the film aims to shed light on the changes in British society through the generations.
