Movie Info

In this frolicsome costume epic, the title character is a lusty orange vendor-turned-actress who becomes the "great and good friend" of merry monarch King Charles II. This is not to the liking of the King's current favorite, the Duchess of Portsmouth, who wastes no time plotting Nell Gwyn's downfall.

It seems to me that [Anna Neagle] has caught the spirit of the role and carried it off with honors.
