A near Miss?



Good lord! Released on DVD this week is Our Miss Fred, the very first big screen outing for the amazing Danny La Rue; co-starring some classic British actors such as Alfred Marks, Lance Percival, Lally Bowers and Frances de la Tour.

According to the blurb: "Shakespearean actor La Rue is drafted into WWII and appearing in a camp show in France when the Nazis advance. He will be shot as a spy unless he continues in his female costume. Soon he is trying to escape in the company of a group of randy English schoolgirls." Hooked yet?

Totally kitch and dreadful, you can order it from Dress Circle (where else?)

Dress Circle Music Shop

But rather than dwell too long on quite how bad this film is, why not remind ourselves of the real reason why Danny LaRue has a special place in our queeny hearts...
