Cardboard Cavalier

Stars: Sid Field, Margaret Lockwood, Mary Clare

In Cromwellian England, royalists commisson a barrow boy to carry a secret letter. Helped by Nell Gwynn, he succeeds after encounters with a castle ghost and custard pies

In wintry 17th century London, a poor barrow boy chances upon lordly protection from Oliver Cromwell’s bullying soldiers.

The grateful wretch is entrusted by his new master with the delivery of a vital letter from the exiled King Charles II in France.

He befriends tavern owner Nell Gwynne and sets off on his mission, but the Roundheads are in hot pursuit...
