Charming combination of Strauss and washing machines
This is a charming little romantic comedy, directed by Harold French, that reliable supplier of civilised entertainments. Uniquely, it gives a starring role to someone who has invented a new type of washing machine (Michael Redgrave). It then pairs him romantically with an heiress (Barbara Mullen, famous years later on TV with Doctor Finlay's Casebook) with a love of Strauss and the The Blue Danube. The film rambles all over the place, but that's all part of the charm - it's all about the oddities and pleasing digressions of life. A witty script, delightful characterisations, a most unusual but effective romantic pairing, and all the quaintness of an utterly lost age.
