rather a charming film
20 February 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Quite apart from the fact that this is an early outing in the career of Michael Powell it is also notable for featuring 3 actors who would go on to bigger and better films in the future,Googie Withers,Louis Hayward and Bernard Miles.Withers is very funny in her attempts to take off a wisecracking American secretary.There are a few interesting directorial touches such as the way Hayward is introduced at the beginning of the film by an extended tracking shot.Dinner at a big restaurant is shown by way of a waiter serving at the table with curtains in the background and music on the soundtrack.This is a very enjoyable film which you should make every effort to see if it comes your way or appears again on TV
