  • Irene: What a surprising picture......

    There is nothing that you read about the picture that makes you say "I've got to see this", but you really get caught up after 10 minutes. The story is tried and true-and there is nothing really incredibly new about it, but it's a sweet picture. Anna Neagle is cute as Irene. Ray Milland is quite good as the guy who loves Irene and fronts a fashion house to give her a job. May Robson as the grandma that everyone has had. You KNOW the $450 dress is gonna get ruined. What you don't realize is that in the course of 100 minutes you realize love, fun, laughter, heartache, music, dancing all of it. And it all comes back together in the last 3 minutes. This is a really fun picture if you have the time to check it out. If you don't - try to make time. 85/100

  • Soooo Enjoyable!

    Loved this movie...I always enjoy May Robson and Billie Burke AND Ray Milland is quite a hottie! Love the light hearted comedies!

    Ann Neagle's performance is 1st class in this pleasant and entertaining film. She makes the film memorable and the cast pitches in too. Want a little uplifting? This film may be the cure.

    my late mother irene watched this film at the oldest running cinema in the world here in clevedon north somerset. I have also been named sara louise irene. I found the reference to this film when i was reading my late mothers love letters to my late dad ralph. she described the film in these letters which were sent to my dad in the war while he was serving abroad in the navy. she so enjoyed the film particularly as it was in techniclor in the alice blue gown sequence sung by anna neagle in the film. i would absolutely love to buy this film on dvd it would mean so much to me as i too also love these old romantic 1940s films.

    • 5/31/12

    Starts out sort of promising but as soon as the film turns to color the plot, and all interest, goes out the window, replaced by drawn out and incredibly boring waltz scenes. Even after the film goes back to B&W the meandering storyline remains mind-numbingly dull and tedious. I nodded off a few times near end and each time I snapped out of it Irene was STILL solo waltzing across the screen! At an overly long 1h 41m, this is one time-waster you'll wish you avoided.

    • 4/5/10

    Anna Neagle is charming as the title character. The supporting cast is wonderful, Billie Burke, May Robson, Arthur Treacher and Roland Young are very fine. Good music, and the wonderful score was nominated for an Academy Award. Great costume design and the overall production is quite fine. It's a sweet and enjoyable film.
