Victorian melodrama
14 August 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a period drama from quota quickie director-producer George King.The film charts the rise of John Halifax from poverty to respected businessman and mill owner.The suffix to the film title is "Gentleman".Somehow he manages to overcome every problem by fairness ingenuity and turning the other cheek.Though even he nearly looses his temper when his blind daughter is trampled to death by a horse ridden by the nasty Lord Luxmore.The problem is that John Halifax is just too unbelievably nice.One just wishes that he would get angry once in a while The film climaxes with a bank under financial strain.John Halifax yet again comes to the rescue by opening a large account with the ailing bank.
