Mr. Charles: I'm asking you, is it a time to bring my daughter home, four o'clock in the morning? Is it, Mr Haughton? You're a fine specimen. You ruin my daughter, disgrace her parents and then come whining the car broke down.
Mary: But it did!
Mr. Charles: That'll do from you. Hold your tongue.
Mary: But dad, it's the truth.
Mr. Charles: We've heard that story before, eh Mother? But I never expected to hear it in my own home. I thought I'd brought you up to know better than to go gallivanting with the first young waster who took a fancy to you...

Average Englishness
14 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Most followers of cinema will recognise John Mills in this film before anyone else, and it is perhaps his presence which is the only real reason you might give this a go as there's nothing special about it at all. It's stage play stuff with an unhealthy smattering of Englishness and stiff upper-lip about it, surrounding a frowned upon relationship of the time - all of which looks outdated with a story irrelevant to the modern day. The script basically lacks the wit of an Oscar Wilde, and you could certainly envisage him in this day and age editing the screenplay into something that would amuse whilst maintaining the crux of love affair plot. Mills is decent but not standout, and the same can be said for the rest of the cast.
