The Mudlark


Time Out says

This British-made Fox production wheels on a heavily made-up Irene Dunne as Queen Victoria and cuts in a lot of touristy footage in the service of a whimsical story about a young scamp who inveigles his way into Windsor Castle and gives the gloomy old monarch a good laugh in the process. Guinness is all fuss and business as Prime Minister Disraeli, pouncing on the incident to push his new Reform Bill through Parliament, but it's the boy, played by the 11-year-old son of comedian Ted Ray, who steals the movie.
