starring Alec Guinness, Irene Dunne and Andrew Ray as 'The Mudlark'

A young boy's determination to see Queen Victoria so touches her that she consents to appear in public again after an absence of fifteen years.
Alec Guinness contributes a finely sketched portrait of Disraeli, Irene Dunne plays Victoria, and Andrew Ray - son of comedian Ted Ray - makes his debut in this film which was chosen for the Royal Film Performance in 1950.
Written and produced by Nunnally Johnson
