After her release from detention at Her Majesty's expense (her pillowtalk with journalist Edward Judd reveals an imminent apocalypse - hitherto a State secret), Janet Munro is given a sinecure in the library of the Daily Express by the appreciative and paternalistic gentlemen of Fleet Street. Munro was one of Disney's most bright-eyed and bushy-tailed daisy-pickers turned short-haired seductress, a scrappy ingénue with a troubled private life who wore tight sweaters and glasses she didn't need. In a documentary-like film full of newspapermen playing themselves, it's essential that Munro fits each of her roles, and for most of the film she represents an interesting mix of Jennifer Snoek-Brown's female librarian archetypes.
