The Ghosts of Berkeley Square is a 1947 British comedy film, directed by Vernon Sewell and starring Robert Morley and Felix Aylmer. The film is an adaptation of the novel No Nightingales by Caryl Brahms and S. J. Simon, inspired by the enduring reputation of the property at 50 Berkeley Square as "the most haunted house in London". Despite its stellar cast of highly respected character actors and its inventive use of special effects, the film proved less successful at the box-office than had been hoped.

Trouble is brewing in the banana republic of Bianco for both His Excellency, El Presidente, and the British Consul, Brant. Rebels, led by Diego De Costa, the trusted "Minister of the Marines and the Customs" and Lieutenant Enricquo, the gunnery officer of the small republic's one battleship, have taken over the battleship, and the town. Most of the British citizens have taken refuge at the Consulate or have been evacuated to the small cruiser in Bianco's port, the "H. M. S. Audacious." But there are two major issues; the Consul's daughter, Pamela, and Canadian Lieutenant Bill Armstrong have been kidnapped by the rebels and now held hostage on the battleship "El Mirante," and El Presidente was visiting the consulate when the war broke out and is now under the protective custody of the British Empire. De Costa informs the "Audacious" commander, Captain Markham, that if El Presidete is not turned over to the rebels in six hours, the 15-inch guns of the battleship will blow the Consulate itself to bits. Markham, who can not fire first as the aggressor and is out-gunned anyway, is, with only his six-inch guns, in a bit of a sticky-wicket mess. Or, in the words of El Presidente: "Death she as light as one leetle feather...Duty she as heavy...."

Gracie plays a London publican's daughter named after Nell Gwynn, who much like the original, becomes romantically involved with a King(John Loder). This one however, isn't English, but from a broken down mittleEuropean duchy with a lonely castle amidst an Alpine-like landscape. They meet while she's selling (quite Nell Gwynnishly)oranges on the streets, with proceeds for a charity trust. He gets to know her and hers at the pub, and she attends a full dress affair in his honor at the embassy. The King is informed by his father he must make an announcement that he's going to marry the princess of another royal family in order to acquire badly needed power and funds. Nellie is hurt and runs off, not understanding how much he really wanted her. A telegram with a confusing message is soon received at the pub, and the family leaves to go to the King's side, believing that Nell's to marry him after all. But the truth is evident on arrival, that though his feelings are still with her, he must marry the dull and emotional daughter of the wealthy neighboring monarch. Gracie-that is, Nellie, gamely makes the best of it and takes the silly princess though a crash course in charm, and in no time she become more presentable, and the royal wedding will be a success. Our Nell grins and bears it. Brave girl.
