When Dr. Montgomery (Alastair Sim) deals with the blow Jim Colter (John Mills) sustained to his head, he applies a round sticking plaster. In the next shot it has changed to a horizontal rectangle. When Jim arrives at the Alcazar club, the plaster is a vertical rectangle. By the time he reaches The Lucky Star to accost Ted Purvis (Stewart Granger) the plaster has disappeared. See more »
Whilst people get nostalgic for a bygone time where supposedly everyone rooted together, conveniently forgetting how much people were in it for themselves and the spiv culture ruled.
Here comes a slice of life film that was made when the war was still on. Not sure how this one went past the censor as the subject matter involves an AWOL soldier who wants to find his wife after he gets wind that she is being wooed by a supposedly invalid playboy type draft dodger excellently played by Stewart Granger who is also an ex boxer.
Granger is trying to get his wicked ways by spinning whatever yarn he can and showing her a good time. Add to this, some mishaps, John Mills AWOL soldier being pursued by military policemen and a mixture of comedy and drama makes this an easy going gem.
There is a rather brutal fight scene at the end and Alistair Sim gives a nice cameo as well as Jean Kent wearing not a lot, not sure what the censor was doing when her scene turned up!
