Woman in a Dressing Gown – review

28 July 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

I saw this movie for the first and only time crossing the Atlantic in 1957, on the Mauritania, on the way to the States. My fellow English Speaking Union scholars and I, still in the grip of Look Back in Anger and seething from the moral and political debacle of Suez, regarded it with mirthful contempt. It was the kind of stilted, patronising British movie about working-class and lower-middle-class life we were in flight from after we'd just embraced Paddy Chayefsky's Marty, The Catered Affair and The Bachelor Party, and been thrilled by Ealing's Alexander Mackendrick making his American debut with Sweet Smell of Success.

DVD Review - Twice Round the Daffodils (1962)

29 April 2012 11:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Twice Round the Daffodils, 1962.

Directed by Gerald Thomas.

Starring Juliet Mills, Donald Sinden, Donald Houston, Kenneth Williams, Ronald Lewis, Andrew Ray, Joan Sims and Jill Ireland.


A group of four male patients arrive at a sanatorium to be treated for tuberculosis. As they adjust to their new home, each one of them starts to take a shine to the nurse and try their best to gain her attention.

A classic piece of nostalgic British comedy comes to DVD in the shape of Twice Dound the Daffodils and you cannot help but love it if for no other reason than the ‘they don’t make them like this anymore’ factor. Produced and directed by the legendary ‘Carry On’ team of Peter Rogers and Gerald Thomas, you might expect this to me 85 minutes of innuendo and seaside postcard humour, but it is a much sweeter and poignant film than that.
