Doleful tale Is Almost A Polemic
18 May 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Clearly a treatise on t6he evils of money.Mervyn Johns is a businessman whose family always yearn for a better lifestyle which is clearly beyond him.He meets the unscrupulous Alfred Drayton who seems to specialise in insider trading and manipulating the market.At a speech at Peter Hammonds school Drayton having given a gold cup then extols the virtues of money.A rather heavy handed allusion to the Golden calf.For a time Johns acquires a lifestyle which he can neither afford or sustain.It all comes crashing down around his ears.He is like a lamb to the slaughter,whilst Drayton commits suicide.Johns goes to prison and on his release he and his wife go back to their original unfullfilling lifestyle.He and his wife pause for thought in Lincoln Cathedral.The biggest laugh must be reserved for Peter Hammond.At 23 years old he was expected to play a young schoolboy and wear short trousers.What actors have to do for their art!
