Familiar story from a great British director
26 October 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a film from someone whom I consider to be one of the great directors of British cinema of the 30s and 40s.The BFI have published a book about him and he had a season of films at the BFI Southbank.He combines familiar themes and values into essentially the same story.If you have seen "Music Hall" and "Say It With Flowers" you will know what I mean.He espouses the importance of the community spirit and everyone pulling together from top to bottom.In this film Clive Brook plays the managing director of a shipyard which has to close in the Great Depression.He does all he can to help his employees and will not give up.Ironically it is war which comes to his rescue as the yard is reopened to build ships for the navy.Baxter follows the fortunes of some of the former yard employees.He gets a sympathetic performance out of Brooks.Whilst it is not an exceptional film it is well directed by Baxter.Incidentally if you buy Baxters soups or jams in your local supermarket he came from that family.
