The Fast Lady (1962)

1962 | UK | Ken Annakin | ★★★

Based on Keble Howard's 1925 novel, Ken Annakin's mildly entertaining The Fast Lady is a lively, historically fascinating romantic comedy, buoyed by the charismatic performances of Stanley Baxter, Julie Christie, James Robertson Justice, et al.


"Classic British comedy, starring Stanley Baxter and Julie Christie. Murdoch Troon (Baxter) is a shy civil servant attracted to the vivacious Claire (Julie Christie), the daughter of a prominent businessman. In an attempt to impress Claire, Troon acquires a vintage Bentley racer, 'The Fast Lady', and undertakes a series of driving lessons to learn how to handle the car. Needless to say, Troon's attempts to impress Claire don't go entirely according to plan." Network
